So I decided to tear apart my spare engine to see what all was damage. (It was hydrolocked)
Where the hell did everything go???

There it is!!!

MONEY SHOT!!!

And another!!!

So the rod didn't just bend it actually twisted when it came to a screeching halt. But other than that everything looks good other than a little bit of rust. Next step. 200+WHP off spray, 300+WHP on spray.[hihi] [burnout]

Do you have the valve cover and would perhaps be interested in selling it?

You don't have one? I thought we all did. I do.
No, not yet, maybe after the kid is born. I was going to get one for a beefed up NA build, but now I might be going the turbo route and sell off all my Cossie parts. I was pissed when all the mustangs took off on me in the straights when I held them off in the turns.

I know the previous owner and he was driving through a large puddle and was actually on his way out when a truck that was driving by created a wave and it submerged the whole filter.

Or I could just get brand new 2.3 rods and pistons from FocusSport for 160 bucks.
