no worries :)

 

ahh yeah, the damage being that far back probably does have a lot to do with hiding it. Did the engine seem unbalanced at all? not rocking around too much in the car?

Didn’t seem unbalanced at all, the motor is pretty well solid mounted with the engine mount style so it’s pretty easy to feel any vibration through the car. Think it’s just from years of dumping 4th and being so limiter happy the shock loading has started a fracture until it’s cracked through. It was doing near on 7000rpm at full track when it let go so I’m very suprised it didn’t go rods out and spray sh*t everywhere.

haha, yeah, you can probably count yourself a bit lucky in that respect, but also mad respect for smashing it like that :spoton: :buttrock:

After pulling the rest of the crank and cutting the filter I decided to pull the head and clean everything as I wasn’t happy with what I found. When I pulled the head I found that the pistons have touched the head probably from when the crank has let go at high rpm. Number 6 is the worst and has physically touched the others look to have just hit the carbon and left there mark. Can see the lathe marks from the piston in the head.
