John...I am sorry to hear that.

Jumped a timing chain? That'* pretty unheard of in our setups. How'd you manage that one?

ask the engine. process of elimination points to the timing chain really..... at first thought snapped crank, but thats fine. engine cranks over but fights the compression stroke so that means the timing is way off, #4 cylinder took heavy damage according to the plug.....

I'm wondering if you popped a piston. That may have the same effect as you describe.

i popped a piston on the last motor but it didnt behave like this one...

got to about 5800-6000rpm and it revved real fast for a second car lurched, and slammed into the 6500 limiter and stalled....

and ive scanned this car a couple times and no major constant kr, once i did notice a spike to 6* but i chalked it up to the failing maf that i just replaced last week which also made my system lean code finally go away.

last time i scanned it i had a max of .2 kr for a second during a 2nd gear pull and it never came back....

HAve you checked fuel pressure on it? How old is the fuel pump? Fuel Filter? Blowing multiple engines in a setup usually indicates a fueling issue or improper programming in the PCM.
