Piston will be in a thousand pieces in the oil pan. Hypereutectic pistons tend to crumble as opposed to forged which usually take a beating a little better. (Unless I have it backwards). I think they are cheaper though. Shouldn't be that expensive to fix just labor intensive. Another plus is that there shouldn't be any cylinder damage.

Just 6 more hours of work then I'm free. I had never needed a vacation this bad before, this summer has been killing me. I have sold 2x so far this year as what I did up to this point last year. I have already surpassed my last year sales by 30% which means that much more job management and overseeing. Couple that with other increased work responsibilities I am at my breaking point. Been going hell bent for months working at home almost every night after an already 10-12 hour work day

Got hooked up with tickets to see brad paisley tonight then I have a 2am departure scheduled headed to June lake for 5 days of low cell signal and fishing, cigars, and beer.

Another free rear diff oil change up for grabs if you have a D35 and are available during the work day, basically 7am-about 2:30ish.

I believe that's what the fine print in the warranty claims. Same with Chevy LQ9 factory direct crate motors. They have a 15 minute rebuild recommendation. They're basically the next step down from your full drag engine build.

Khris - Any idea what caused the engine to mess up the piston? How come you are looking at replacing the whole thing instead of repairing? I recall you being really excited about that engine; it seems odd that you would give up on it so quickly. Then again, I know nothing about this so it might make perfect sense to bag it and move forward.

Cause I'm pretty sure there's virtually nothing that's salvageable inside it. About the only thing I'm guessing that may not be replaced is the drivers side head. If that ends up being the case... Might as well just replace the whole thing. I'm pretty sure the rod snapped too cause it was no where to be seen and I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that a rod/piston combo getting tossed thru the bottom end is likely to mess it up pretty good. I'm going to tear it down eventually but I'm not exactly holding my breath.

No clue what caused the failure. Something related to it running...
