How did they get bent? Hydro-lock? Hit the heads?

Too much boost but now I'm addicted.
The turbo and waste gate are going to a local shop next week to find out limits as well as the injectors . We think boost killed the rods and the ring lands may have been detonation but fuel is up and everything is black not white burn in the combustion chambers , plugs are black . Numbers will tell but now that it's completely apart a new recipe is in need.

If I was rich and retired like the rest of you I would be looking for ls9 but I'll need to force myself into a nice small block.

Tune it down is like asking a chick to get a breast reduction and that in my book is considered capital sin..... period

GO FOR IT ROD!!! Get what you want...sell something.

That is why GOD invented credit cards...pretend your rich.

Put an LS9 in Jimish and you will be number one in the USA.

Sorry to read about the carnage! Really sucks having an engine self-destruct. I do understand/know how addicting speed/power are, as I threw a rod through the block of my Boss 302 back in high school - trying to emulate NASCAR's 9000 RPM mark w/ only a DYI balancing and stock internals. Try, try again. After market rods may have helped, but hindsight is always 20/20, eh? So, will you re-build for "wild" or keep it "mild" and add a few after market goodies for reliability?

Actually quite the opposite.

Square peg in a round hole.

Fire engine red hair.

About a billion freckles

Geeky with girls and sports.

Dork glasses since 4th grade.

My Mom made me wear wing tips.

My Dad made me get a crew cut.

Not exactly a mover and shaker.

Tune it down or build it up? Sloppy Mechanics are making 700+ hp on junkyard 4.8s. No joke.

Heres an example.
