Also my oil is changed every 3k with full synthetic (way under recommended with way higher quality oil then recommended) Your clearly not reading now go find another thread; Your not benefiting the conversation. You came in insulting my car (my crappy white wheels remember? guess what buddy until you pay my car bill S.T.F.U) now go away, you have 33 post go find somewhere else to boost your post count.

Yes i do drive spirited so i probably exacerbated preexisting problem, that is what my hypothesis is at least. The main bearing breaking only is slightly suspicious, if it was due to abuse i would think i would have broken a piston too or at least something else then just a bearing(and then the others when the first failed).
Ok so the main bearing spun w/ so revs, the rod bearings usallay go first. Look at what takes out 23's= low on oil. Yeah, I don't like the bearing setup on the D-tech/mzr motors w/ no rod or main tangs. I also don't like the press fit for the cams & crank. I guess there setup for production. Just to say, I'd run Mobil1 oil in it.

But it's obvious as hell you're hard on your car (shredded tires, really?) so abuse is what I'm gonna call it. So what did you do? Run it low on oil? Rev the piss outta it on a cold startup a bunch? I bet your tach has seen red-line more than a handful of times...
I do none of these things except the low oil thing because that's what ford requires me to do and I've had 2 bad engines. Is it not possible to wear out tires in less than 30 000 miles? Personally I've had tires that have been trashed inside of 6000 miles of highway only driving. Given how terrible ford has handled my situation I'm glad that the OP was able to minimize the hassle.

Tjrommel @op, you run 87 octane? My theory is you were driving on 93 and filled up on 87 out of nowhere and comp delayed on timing retardation causing detonation issues blowing a valve off its seats?

sanford12 Changing the shredded tires for the stock ones makes one think multiple hole shots or some autocross or even drifting. All the parts you removed were to increase output. You can't tell me you didn't use it in a way unintended for street use on more than one occasion. I know I would have as well as anyone else here. But just because you did abuse it doesn't mean it didn't have a defective part you may have just found it sooner.

Just turned 46,000 only thing done was strut caps and clutch pack due to slipping not shutter never had that until update.

When I worked for a dealer we had a lady drive her car from New York to Florida came in engine light on and knocking checked oil a ball of goo on tip never changed oil in 39,000 miles yet service manger would do it under warranty if she could show just three oil change receipts so I rebuilt it for 1600.00 she could have gotten a used one cheaper.
They never found out the cause i supplied a whole oil change history and everything. they chalked it up to faulty parts. If they found a cause i was never informed. They were shady at first until they dissembled the engine, then they became my best friend lol. So I'm not sure
