Couple of photos I also posted on Grump's site tonight also.
The C6 ZO6 piston & rod the customer gave me.
He had 1000 RWHP and It let go with a Big Bang.
Rods all survived.
Factory Cast Hyperuentic pistons failed.
Amazing strong rods Titanium.
The Larger Rod is my TA Pontiac Crower Titanium rods I am using my engine build 2019.
The bearing is Lead Babbit. Scratched easy with my thumb nail.
On backside of the rod bearing its stamped 07/07 for July 2007 made.
No Titanium dusting issue like later aluminum bearing LS Engines all. They even used aluminum bearings in Crate Big Block Chevies all. Grumpy showed us recent.
Terrible for High HP & Racing...they Suck....going to go Kaboom with HP !
