to keep new motors running after a rod failure or pistons failure of the current engine means you need to make sure the oil cooler get replaced, clean out the oil pump, clean the oil galleys on the block AND heads. The turbo will survive if the car was shut off as soon as you heard it. If ran too long the turbo will die and a new one needed.

These are important measures that's all. It's good that you're getting a new one for the next build. All the things will just need to be bolted onto the next shortblock.

So no warranty on the 2.0L??

Everything was replaced brand new since everything was destoryed with metal, Brand new 11mm oil pump, oil cooler, water pump complete Head gaskets, Used oem turbo with low miles, redid the heads chances are im missing something. I bought the rebuilt shortblock from (no name company since i wont deal with the drama) an they bought it from someone else so they wont warranty it. I know im getting Screwed with since im not HOME to deal with this an currently in Afghanistan for the last 2 years. so now im doing what i should of done from the beginning an going with the hybrid swap

that block must have not been cleaned.. must have had shavings in the oil galleys.... that's my guess.... good luck with the new build though!!
