    Looks like MetroPerformance.

    Good to see the block pulled, excited to see you rebuild it.

    I've got GREAT NEWS, and really bad news....

    So... I melted the piss out of a piston, and put a hole through the stock block. So... resale of the block? Not happening. Also... the heat of the cylinder means I have to replace the valves in that cylinder.

    But... the heads are good!! And there was no valve tapping! So my cams are good!

    No... I bought a new block, and am putting CP pistons in it (see above).

    Thanks though.

    Only CP pistons? Thats what I put in my new STi block. You are running a lot more power then me too. I am just using your build thread as a guidance...I want to go with either a 20g xt or the dom 1.0 but not sure if just having forged pistons in my block will hold that power. Any reason why you are only adding pistons?

    So the inherent question remains...WHY did the piston melt? Running lean as **** in that cylinder I assume...

    My guess would be that Kevin has seen something with the tune he isn't happy with since he bad mouthed the tuner previously

    The piston popped, then I tried to limp the car back, the car over heated, and the coolant was boiling. Me limping the car back melted the piston I would assume, because I went from having power and smoking to no power, then stopped the car.

    I was pulling timing at the top, and at 12:1 AFRs. Then boom goes the piston... Sounds like a tuning problem to me....
