3 fried pistons, with 1 taking a pretty good beating. :dunno: :rolleyes:
1 of the main bearings shot, looks to be no visable damage, checking it out to be sure. :thumbsup: :eek:
Only slight scoring in the block, nothing major :thumbsup:
Very slight damage to one of the heads, should be repairable, did not destroy the valves ;)

Believe it or not, but the rings were not as bad as expected, that must have been because it had a safe tune with a/f of 11.8 :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

One word of advice to those thinking of upgrading to a larger blower. Set up an account to save money for your rebuild, it not a matter of if the engines blows, but when it gives blows. :( Oh yeah, never ever under any circumstances use Brisk plugs in a really high boost engine :mad:

Damn, when did this happen? Well, I am sure it will be better on the re-build! Good luck!

I will add it to the fried piston Carl gave me from his rebuild.
