go eagle rods . Heres some of mine...
That was one of my wiseco pistons too. 16lbs on a k20 @ 8K, I'm thinking it jumped timing...but I dont really know what happened. That was "only" pushing about 375whp

As long as we're showing our best work . . . in this case, a Carrillo rod broke, shifted the cam timing and all the exhaust valves hit the pistons. Two broke off. One poked a hole in a piston, the other in the head. Still set a record (Bonneville) but had to go through impound to verify displacement.
I'm still using this head . . . as a fixture to build headers.
