Found out what happen to my motor

In #3 cylinder one of the valves had a fateful run in with the piston at TDC and shattered the piston, bent the valve, killed the head and scared the cylinder wall. Now waiting on Ford to see if they want to fix the damage or replace the motor

honestly ive heard all kinds of theories...but the only thing i know to be true for sure is that the cooling properties of the motor are the worst on cylender #3.....i cant for sure say what led to the problem for sure though. It seems that about 85% of the motor failures ive ever seen or heard of on a 6.0 started on cyl 3.....it always seems to have that one involved....

If they do a short block and if they are cool with doing them it would be a great time!!! If they do a long block they would be pretty tough to talk into it though. I wouldnt be afraid to do a long block (a 6.0 that had never been started) one bolt at a time but honestly most places would freak at the idea of that.....
