vortech 99 mustang 8 ibs boost 402 whp
Reved the car to 7k during a run. the car shut off by itself with check engine light came on. turned on again but it was missfiring.
is it just bearings or it could be something else? bent rods?
around how much would this cost?

Well, if it's a new blower and tune, you could have run it lean and melted pistons/vlaves. Or could be a blown head gasket.

chances are if you didn't hear any catastophic failure (like pistons going through the block), it's just a HG. But you can never rule out bent push rods or bent valves (due to valve float @ high RPM)

Do a leak down test and then thak the head off. Valve jobs are usually around $1200
