    Shattered Piston

    So I recently shattered a piston and a rod.
    I was wondering if I got a short block would that fix it? Or do I need new heads as well.
    Also does anyone know where I could get a used one?

    Thanks in advance BTW.

    what caused the "shattered piston and rod"?

    Have you taken the motor apart yet? What's the heads/valves look like? damaged?

    You'll need new oil pump, may as well do a water pump, t-belt, new oil cooler, get your turbo CHRA cleaned extremely well, etc..

    I'm assuming that it was an overboost problem.

    My guy hasn't taken apart the heads yet I think.

    This is largely empirical as Rogan's response indicates. What you need depends on what condition the heads are in at this point. If a show-stopper event sent shrapnel all over it's hard to say what parts were affected without looking.

    I've seen a motor with a shattered piston just a block and oil pump, but sometimes the luck runs out. I'd imagine each case is different.
