Which harness is damaged now. The one to the ecm or bcm? This was a question I had as well.

How did they decide it was the engine and not something in the valve train? Also, this is why I am questioning the harness.

That's how its done.

It's the engine harness.

They varified it was the bottom end by supposedly finding a ton of metal in the oil.

I feel the same way. They should do the honorable thing and give me their insurance information and allow the insurance to fix my car. It has been in my garage since I got the car back months ago. An adjuster came about and appraised the damages to the car. The adjuster also varified the car was damaged by them as well as the car was in a drivable usable state before race proven Motorsport "fixed" the car. And all there was is a tapping noise prior to it going to them.

I Agree 100% Race proven motorsports should show everyone on this forum they are reputable and honorable by fixing my car. And I will post truthfully of they contact me and do so. They can either have their adjuster come out and asses the damage so I can have the car fixed or they can fix it them selves. But they should respond in a positive way to show all of their potential customers they care and will back up their name. Other wise I feel sorry for a company that is run that way. If they choose to do nothing.

Like from this lifter? Wonder how much of the cam fraged too?



There are numerous things that can frag in an engine that doesn't require a new engine and leaves metal junk in the oil. So many times I have had guys come saying that shop "A" said they need a new engine just to find that they could have done a little more diagnostics and actually found the right fix.

Takes around 1600- 1800 HP.
Aerodynamics especially undercarriage real important.
240 MPH +

I agree in my defense I trusted them because I had my second son due during the same time as this issue and didn't have time to mess with the car. I needed a car with 4 seats (GTO) because my vette is the only alternative and I can't use it with a car seat. Let alone two. So I trusted the shop to have the car done with in a week or so. That was in august I believe. I didn't get the car back untill October after weeks and weeks and weeks of back and fourth emails. Emails basicly blaming everything from the ECM, bcm, key fob, radio, you name it. Everything but them. As far as I'm concerned if a shop blames multiple things on a car it's probably the shop that's the problem. That being said who knows what was wrong with the engine at this point I'm so frustrated with this issue I just want my car fixed. And they should make the situation right.
