so these so called "dinosaur" motors have an over-horsepower relief on them called a pushrod? What I heard on the corral was that pushrods just sit inside of the motor then when the PCM detects an over-horsepower condition these pushrods bend or break. Is this true?

Actually the push-rod theory is not true. The over-horsepower dectection system, is actually the head gaskets, usually the drivers side right between cylinders 7 & 8. Just ask Rdrunnr.

You must have the pushrod confused with the 32 valve motors that like to explode the #7 pistons :D

I have seen that type of modular motor..I think its called the Sean Hyland $15,000 special. Pretty sure they are so unique that they only run once and then they have to be replaced. Just ask dave King :D
