    Thought I would open up a new thread, took the heads off to find the #1(front passenger side, piston & rod combo & #4 front drivers side piston & Rod combo smashed to pieces. The rest of the 6 pistons and spark plugs looked great, #8 included. Both sides of the block were cracked and the the #1 cylinder was windowed. Heads looked pretty decent, but I'm going to replace them anyway as there is some damage to one of the cams and some metal markings on the valves on the #4 cylinder head. If I was in the states I would get them fixed at a machine shop. Overall wasn't to difficult to take apart. Use to rebuilding motorcycle engines, beside the weight, they're pretty easy to work once you get them out of the car. Found out I can deadlift a shortblock by myself and move it out of the way!:rockon:

    Didn't have a boost gauge, but I had an 82mm and open cold air intake with stock exhaust, minus a Roush Axel back. Guesstimate 10.5 from what others have said. Made 609hp and 550ft pounds of torque on a 93 tune.

    Ouch, that looks spendy.
    Nice shop, is that a base hobby shop or what?

    That is some impressive damage. This is what broke in mine with a very similar setup. Melted #6. Everything else was mint.

    Yep 100 mph down shifted to 4th and gunned it and it let go instantly. Sucked, as I had my girlfriend in the car.

    Not a whole lot lol. Thinking about making a table out of it with a glass top.

    Yep, it's a base hobby shop. It's relatively new too. A multimillion dollar facility that was funded using MWR funding. It's an awesome asset to have. Only cost $6.00 an hour to use the lift and have access to most tools. Specialty tools cost an extra dollar. You can keep your car overnight at $3.00 a day. Pretty stoked to have this.

    Not very long, and not very sure. The only attribute that was off was the timing (spiked high), and that's hard to say if it happened before/after something broke.

    I was using Super 98 in Germany, which oils the equivalent of 93 Octane in the states.

    These TVS cars always seem to blow up.

    Either way I'm jerkin' yer gherkin, it's awkward as hell to pick up a block.. especially when all the edges are sharp and could potentially sever a finger or two. I am kind of curious though, you know... for science.
