To get to those loads and hit the limiter causing unintended loss of load.
I've seen plenty boosted whatever's not make it out of the burnout box.

I just figured you already had good heads and rockers, and a solid block and crank. If it didn't destroy everything, quite a bit cheaper to put a $750 set of pistons and a $750 set of rods, and have the block bored and the crank reground (and even pay someone to assemble it if you weren't comfortable) than $10k. JMHO.

I just hope my engine delivery isn't delayed by the cold weather in Texas.

Mother nature can be so cunty. We're suppose to be having global warming, and that bitch mother doesn't seem to have gotten the memo.

I want my engine.

I hope it wasn't shipped via Fed-Ex since they are down a truck/trailer, in Texas.

I guess they must not enjoy the thrill as much as you do! Some people have cars like that just to say they do. Cruise nights and Cars and Coffee does not usually put much stress on the equipment.

It was news that the block may have holes.
You never mentioned an oil pool so I thought it was intact.
You got some thrills from the busted lump, suitable now as a mailbox post.
I'll hold off on contemptuous comments about FedEx until after their low bid contractor driver delivers your new one.

Dammit! I missed this thread. Just read the whole thing.
Since all the obvious guesses were already made, and considering the extreme load the engine was under, and considering how rapidly the engine stopped, I was going to guess broken main caps. That would have been wrong, I guess... but close. 🤷‍♂️

The valve drop seemed most likely when I first heard it but, since hearing both side of the block failing, it's making me think it was an even more sudden stoppage.

Under boost accelerating, sudden nothing without clatter?

Both sides of the block?

The pistons got stopped in both banks at the same time...

...but, I'll stick with my original long distance viewing type of diagnosis of valve train issue.

I haven't heard the full report, just an inside rumor. Still wondering if there's chicken v. egg question on the origin of the failure.

I should be able to get the full story tomorrow.

New flywheel should be here today. 8 bolt instead of 6 bolt.

Butt gears ordered, tranny shift spring lightened (it shifted harder than a 1959 cat dozer).
