To make it simple, here's the email i sent to Fernando and Jim.

Here's some pics of what i've found on the svt. There was coolant in the oil. Coolant was also in the hot side piping, intercooler, cold side piping, intake manifold, all four cylinders and the exhaust manifold. Timing was perfect.

Small amount of coolant around valves..

Head gasket damage..around cylinder 2 and 4

Head damage..also cylinder 2 and 4

Block damage..again cylinder 2 and 4..just a little burn scrapes, cracks, etc.

And finally, i found this moving around in the coolant ports of the turbo. Didn't seem like much until i pulled it out. Not sure if it has anything to do with the engine damage but it does concern me that something broke off in my turbo. Can't tell if it's weld slag or something from the casting when turbo was made.
