Got to admit, that would be pretty funny..But a mistake you only make one time for sure...

I once had a Nitrous car explode on my Dyno...We did a pull and all was fine, but didnt realize the Nitrous solenoid was stuck opened causing nitrous and fuel to puddle up in the manifold. (it was a Zex kit, junk never use them please!!) and when we restarted the car...BOOM!!! It imbedded parts of the manifold in my Ceiling, took out my monitor, dented the hood of the car and did about $8000 worth of damage to the car..It was a fuel injected Import by the way..

Thank GOD my buddy was not under the hood at the time, he would have been seriously injured..

The stuff we do is far more dangerous than we realize..
