apparently the timing belt tensioner was not changed during the engine rebuild... amazing how a failed £50 part can cause £1000 in damage and hours and hours of labor... SMH :chairshot buuuut i'm taking advantage of the situation and fitting some upgrades while it's all apart (the damage seen on the head was from a previous incident, before I bought the car) bent all the valves, mainly the intake side, and cracked some valve guides. and to think it all happened at idle. I would hate to see what this would have looked like if i had her wide open :eek:

Ouch!! I feel for you bro!

Thats a gorgeous colour on our car. Are you doing the work yourself? Easy enough to do on the RB engines which is a huge bonus

Ya its sitting in my garage... I'm buying parts as my budget allows, doing everything except for the head repair. I bought a good one from RK Tuning and Ron shimmed my cams into it
