Can You Spot What Went Wrong?

  1. Those pics are #$%#ing huge.
  2. Well, I cannot, other than the engine fell out of it <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC=""></A>. Then again, I just got up on my day off so <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC=""></A>
  3. Well I saw a piston out of it... maybe it has something to do with that.
  4. Can't really tell, was there an engine in there? Too many hoses and wires in the way to really tell what was in the engine bay.
  5. No transmission?
  6. The only thing I can spot is that it seems that the engine dropped to the floor in an attempt to use the crane to pull it out of the engine bay.
  7. your resolution is #$%#ing small.
  8. you finally did to many househald add ons to your mazda 6?
  9. Tuned By: Home Depot.
  10. Other than the fact that there was a piston missing in the 3rd photo, it looks like someone removed the engine and began disassembling it.
  11. Hmm no one noticed the strange stainless steel line with blue anondized fitting in the engine bay or the metal shearing on the bottom of the pulled out connecting rod?
  12. wheres the engine?
  13. it's obvious; it's a japcar.
  14. i saw the shearing but not particularly the line...
  15. someone ran nitrous and blew a piston/conrod and is repairing it?
  16. Owned by American Ford.
  17. Actually it's a Ford, and it's built in the United States of America, so shove your retarded argument up your own ass and move back to Flint, Michigan.
  18. And powered by a Ford (Duratec) engine.
  19. Japanese cars are DESIGNED to use nitrous stupid.
  20. I'm sorry but most of those pictures show nothing wrong. The only ones that hint at something awry are the ones from above looking directly into the cylinder with the missing piston and the ones where the piston and fractured connecting rod are sitting on top of the engine. All of the other shots don't show any trauma to the engine or transmission.
  21. No engine cover. When you can see the engine, shit happens.
  22. Finally someone with a good eye and a good brain. And what kind of nitrous system runs a single line to the intake? A dry nitrous system.

    Now here is where it requires knowledge of flaws in the 3.0L Duratec motor, or more important the 2001+ upper plastic intake manifold. I know SuperlaxativeOne will remember it, but who else remembers when I removed my EGR valve to cut it down? That is because the EGR valve is so large and long, it creates an obstruction in the intake manifold, which leads to 4% to 7% more air to the rear bank. Now add a dry nitrous system to that equation and now you have 4% to 7% more nitrous going into the rear banks instead of the front ones and run a big enough shot...

    The rear bank's rings were all fried and a cylinder wall gap of 300 thousanths, when stock specification is only 2 thousanths. Compression was at 40 to 50% on the rear bank, suspect one of the pistons, most likely the pulled one, came up and smacked the open valves. Also spun the rod bearing on the piston he pulled, which came from the rear bank.
