Over on the Duramax Diesels forum, poster Cafryer fessed up as the owner of the Chevy after a video taken by a spectator appeared on Facebook. "Unfortunately that is me," Cafryer admitted. Little over a year ago, his truck was rated at 1,048 hp and supposedly sported $20,000 in upgrades. His profile on the forum now boasts a "1500+ hp" badge of honor, offering some indication of the additional work completed since his initial investment. Cafryer stated the blowout occurred from a "little nitrous backfire." And that the damage to the engine "looks a lot worse than it was." Another commenter mentioned how he too had to deal with a few nitrous backfires, "but not nearly that powerful of an explosion."
Given the energy of the blowout, and the debris flung near a crowd, it's a miracle no one was injured. Cafryer, however, remains unfazed: "Its all good guys. (I'm) already fixing it."
Onward and upward.
