Unhappy Need help cars flooding

I was driving down the street in a semi agressive manner to up to about 4500rpm when the car bogged and died. Now when I can get it started I can barely keep it running and large amounts of black smoke comes out of the exhaust. Does anyone know what to do, I need my girl up and running again.

Have you checked the spark plugs?
Is your maf CLEAN?
Any codes?

I just check the plugs and they are very black and mass air seems clean. I have not been able to scan for codes yet. You think it might just be the plugs? Looks like I'm going to have to replace them anyway.

Thanks

How long have you had the procharger on? Your running really rich... Did you get a custom tune with the charger on? Any codes being thrown? If you didn't get it tuned, your 42 lb injectors are just dumping fuel... If you have cats, consider those to now be melted/clogged...

No cats on the car. I have had the procharger on a year but I've only put about 500 miles on the car with it. I was planning on getting it tuned next week being that warm weather is here now. I'm going to put new plugs in it tomorrow to see if that gets me running. If there are any more suggestions please feel free to tell me.

thanks

Something is making it go rich, main suspect the MAF or fuel pressure is too high.

True... But he still hasn't said if he's throwing a code... I know when my MAF was bad it ran really rough. It almost wanted to stall all the time when it came to a stop. It didn't help that I had a bend connecting rod ... But still...

The MAF went bad the same time I bent a rod... Weird huh? This was when I was driving it home after I had the first motor replaced... After 7 miles, I had rod knock. Kinda pissed me off.

As far as codes go... Is your check engine light on?

No check engine light when its trying to run (by the way sounds like a harley when doing so ) but lights up like normal when it dies.

thanks

Sounds like you blew a head gasket to me, my old truck did a similer thing. If you have real low compression in one or more cylinders than they bang around making a lot of racket. Hope you figure it out soon, you've got one hell of ride.

Could a sudden burst of fuel fouled up the sparkplugs somehow? I was going about half throttle up to 4500 rpm when it died. I had to coast across three lane of traffic into a gas station, then have a flatbed haul it to my house, it sucked.

Know the feeling, my car was hauled by a rollback to my driveway where it still sits, waiting for a new heart transplant.

Yeeeeaaaaaaaahh, I was pissed when I found wasps going in under the back fenderwells. It's been sitting for like damn 3 months now, it's depressing. I tell ya though, I've had plenty of time to detail it and get it looking good.

LOL, I figured it out. The tubing running from the mass air to thottle body came apart in the fender well because dumb ass me forgot to tighten a hose clamp last night. I wish I would have know that before I paid to have it hauled back to my house.
Looks like I'm going to be able to fight off the wasps for now 97Red248A
lol

Thank you guys for all your help.
