    Just making sure, there could be several explanations. Two with water though seems like slim chances but I want to see them apart like the rest of you do.

    got one yanked out.



    pulled the oil pump/balance shaft. found the bent rod.
    no bueno, me thinks.

    when i get the head off, ill see if the cylinder is ok.
    right now i cant turn the engine untill i unlock the rods.... then the tranny can come off w/o damaging the torque converter.

    Correct. I want to have all the pictures in one article thread dedicated specifically to them and I would like for this thread to be on discussion of the N20 and its internals. A supplemental pic to associate with what you are saying won't hurt of course.

    This might be a dumb question, but are you planning on evaluating the internals for a possible turbo upgrade (assuming it can handle the added power) in the future??

    Think Alex already said in another thread that they're actually repairing 5 F30s, so I'm sure he'll get back to us when he's got some solid info
