What happens when a cylinder head lifts under acceleration

The above photo's show where a 4G63 (Mitsi Evo) cylinder head melted when the head lifted due to a spike in boost pressure. The photo's below show where the 3 layer metal head gasket tore apart. Luckily there was no other damage to this engine. All can be fixed.

Hytech Evo gets tuned.

The car has made 423kw at all 4 wheels on a rolling road dyno. The tuner has said we should add 8% to the final figure to get true power at the hubs due to excessive wheel spin the car made on the dyno. This brings power up around 457kw at all 4 wheels. See our website soon for a video clip of the dyno run.
And yes, we still have to fit the front bumper on the car.
