Stroker Long Block

Looks like I am in the market for a new engine...... 50,200 miles on the original short block....

Who makes a bullet proof engine / longblock?

I run the spartan 275 as my DD tune....

Thanks

Stock is pretty bullet proof. Guys are making 1,000 HP on stock bottom ends. It typically takes some sort of catastrophic failure for there to be a need for a new short block.

What was the failure? Piston?

Starting to tear into the truck this week......

The truck sounds awful and is throwing a bunch of misfire codes.....

Very low boost when I limped it back.

Thanks for the info!

Ben and Nick form North East Performance Diesel confirmed the engine is junk.

Looks like # 1 and 8 have lost the pistons, either a rod issue or something.......

At this stage, it does not make sense to tear into the engine to diagnose.

Going to talk with Aaron from Rudy's tonight.... GULP

I just had the EXACT same thing happen, should have the truck back this week. My number 8 piston was cracked clean in half but did not do any other damage.

That stinks!!! Did you just rebuild or a new short block?

Will bullet proof pistons and rods solve problems like this??

All I had to do was put a piston, rod, bearing and injector in.

So what's causing this, stuck injectors and hydro-locking? If so, what's the best way to prevent it from happening, or is it pretty much luck of the draw?
