Check your knock correction range, if it was around the stock setting of 6100 and you were revving to say 6800-7k that's about 1k rpms of no knock control, so it would not pull any ignition, or show a knock count. Not to mention it would be in the range were the td04 is pushing some seriously hot air which would tend to detonate a lot.

What was your timing and wideband AFR.. Hopefully you had a wideband or were tuned with one at least.

Here is mine:
Lots of timing or very lean tune or both.. Look at your number 1 piston as well.. Corner nice and shinny. Your EGTs were probably pretty high when that melted. If it was a bad injector only 1 piston would look like it took some serious heat.
