There's no way you'd bend two rods by missing a shift and over-revving it...unless you beat the hell out of the engine constantly and they were already on their way to failing. It was most likely a defect from the factory, probably exacerbated by hard driving but it would've likely failed anyway. Get the dealer to tear the engine down so you can prove you didn't spray - the Roush's come plumbed for nitrous and are covered by warranty...until you spray of course. [:D]

Tell them to take the head off and look at the pistons. They'll be able to tell if you were spraying or not.

It seems to me we just have a lot of abusive drivers.

Abusive has in lack of maintence or skill? please elaborate alittle more. I dog my zetec almost daily no problem (though I am on my second motor but that one went for a different reason than dogging it all the time)

I know of only one that is not from abuse, where the engine skipped timing.

The rest:
Miss shifting and over-reving = Owner Mistake
Loss of oil from faulty sensor installation = Owner Mistake (that one is me)
Oil starvation from failing to re-install oil pickup from BSD install = Owner Mistake
Driving into too deep of water = Owner Mistake
Incorrectly installing a UDP = Owner Mistake

None of those are by fault of Ford or the Duratec engine design.

I missed a few shifts I have overeved....well over rev in that you mean down shift into second at say 74mph then no I have'nt done that. Well you got all good points owner mistakes. Skipped timming now thats a scary thought. Oh I had the incorectly install stock pulley the previuos owner had UD installed and when he sold the car put back on the stock stuf but failed to TQ the crank pulley down needless to say after like 40,000mi later after I had the bolt backed off pulley woobled destroyed end of the crank shaft not to mention made it knock on cyl.3. wow you know I guess you could say that almost everymotor blowing up was cause by the owner or previuos owner ah who would have thunk it [:p]

He doesn't make much sense in his post, so my guess is he either missed going from 2 to 3, and ended up in 1st at 60, or from 3 to 4, and ended up in 2nd doing about 90. Both will send your engine well past 10,000 RPM if done right (or wrong, depending out how you want to phrase it)

I imagine those are the RPMs on a stock valvetrain where the valves meet the pistons, even while in time.
