Another engine that failed catastrophically for your viewing pleasure.

2005 STi (EJ257). Engine was previously built by another shop. They like to paint their work (rather than clean it well enough you dont need paint) and they like to use ACL/Orbit oil pumps. Well, this engine appears to have had an oil issue.

At this point we have at least one snapped rod (an unknown brand h beam using ARP 2000 hardware)and some bent valves. I wont know more until I disassemble completely.

Each head has a freeze plug applied and the block did too. But the block freeze plug came off with one of the holes that opened up in the block. I found the extra freeze plug in with the extra metal. I wonder if that counts as "removal" and voids the warranty???

Hope your weekend goes MUCH better than this engines week went. Be safe and have fun.
