    that's another bad news!!!

    Since last time we talked, I made a huge change of plans, to the extent of getting a smaller turbo and keeping the stock head.

    However I am still going for the Pauters and the custom coated Ross.

    Well that is truely unique Joe!

    How long did the engine run before it grenaded?

    It's hard to tell which came first with the chamber, I'd guess it's Oily from the Torched piston but those bearings look like they've done 300,000 Km's

    Heading out to the shed now I'll check in at lunchtime.

    The engine has almost 2500 miles on it. It was running fine at 13psi until one sudden boost spike at 17psi. When it started to slightly breath blueish smoke, still the smoke didn't suggest this extent of damage!!! Believe it or not, there was almost no blue smoke from the exhaust!! Just a slight hint.

    The bearings are from rods 4 and 6, those I guess are my fault for not upgrading the oiling system.

    I'm off to sleep since its 2 in the morning here.

    Wow was the head re-welded and machined? Looks clean, but the combustion chambers dont look stock and some of them look different than others, as well as some coolant passages misshaped.

    Yes, in fact head was re-welded and machined, could not find a spare head.

    The chambers are smoothed, mildly re-shaped and cc'd. They are exactly the same shape as a deck template was used.

    Coolant passages are far from their original shape but that's a minor issue which does not really effect flow as such, so it is overlookable.
