To get to those loads and hit the limiter causing unintended loss of load.

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.
