Pistons don't just give up. A rod might, but a piston is either a bad tune/gas.

Humor. But obviously the piston looks to have taken the brunt of it.

Well, yeah they can. Had a skirt break on one once. Locked up the engine and scored the wall pretty good. Bad engineering on Ford's part. Of course it was in an '82 Escort sooooo...

We aren't real sure what happened. Either to much boost or defective pistons. Because everything else looks great

I had to pull those pieces out of the piston with a pic. The cylinders only need to be honed
