    Maybe a radial engine next. You can blow an entire cylinder head off and just keep going.

    Pretty sure it was all sarcasm. Then again that Gallo 24 would be sweet. Maybe a radial Gallo 24.

    Wow. Great to see all the interest here. As I stated from the beginning, I had no desire for this to turn into a proverbial $h!t show. Now with that said.....

    I realize that parts break. It happens. It also goes without saying, that I have been OVERLY OCD on maintenance. I've learned quite a bit since the failure was communicated to me. In hindsight, I should've taken this so called "built motor" to task and beaten the snot out of it, right out of the gate. I now know it wouldn't of lasted as long as it had.

    Anyhow, I want to keep this update as concise as possible. If questions arise, or the conversation develops, whereas additional clarification is needed and/or requested, then by all means, I'll expound.

    Let's move onto the reports!

    So, here is the oil analysis from Blackstone Laboratories:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/12Bkw3duA72HEQMILyiD4PJzIE9kFEttS/view?usp=drivesdk

    Also, here is the report from the local machine shop who I had tear this motor down, as well as perfom an in-depth forensic analysis upon same:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9TsCV9YXmrFd293bnZCLXJEREZhVWduZFB4clFiTzdtQmd3/view?usp=drivesdk

    I have/had no affiliation with either of the above vendors prior to me having asked them to perform their respective services. I thought this was/is important as I wanted to have completely neutral, 3rd parties involved in this, so as to provide me with unbiased facts.

    Some pictures sent to me by the machine shop, depicting the less than stellar machining and what not are below.

    Any questions, comments? LMK.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    From LMS perspective this sounds really bad.

    Huh,

    I thought a built motor from L.M.S. would have the block stifeners installed and what not. I didnt read your build from the beginning way back but this sucks. No one likes it too tight or too loose.

    I looked up the procedure for a 2010 sho (I cant remember what year yours is) but the main bearings, rod and head bolts are all torque to yield so those torque specs are WAY under spec.

    Reading this makes you sick.

    When I bought my MKT I contacted them and went elsewhere due to poor customer service during the initial contact. Glad I did.

    I think he has the POWERSTORM FORD 3.5L ECOBOOST PRO SERIES SHORTBLOCK which does not have upper block support.
