Well here it is

One of the little bolts that hold butterfly is gone. I know it went thru the head on top of piston and hopefully blown back out. Now who do I send this to to fix it the right way so this don't happen again. I don't wanna deal with WK as their custom servise has sucked in the past. I'm pissed I found this who knows what my piston or combustion chamber looks like wow.

I think I would try to find a bore scope and look at the top of the piston. If it did any damage to a valve you could be running on borrowed time and when it lets go you could trash that expensive head.

I rebuild around every June or so anyway,lol. I just hope it didn't F the head up. I was planning a 14:1 piston and a better cam soon any how. Cam choices M1,5150, or a RCH cam. I may get web to custom grind me one who knows.

When you get rid of that 5050 can lmk how much you want for it. That's the can I want. I would also pull the head and check out the inside. Head gaskets are cheap. Ported heads are not so cheap.

K bet you're first inline for cam. I already got a buyer for exhaust,also. Yeah I gotta have the head checked over well. Throw away the piston add a 14:1,cam,& new pipes. Next build should be right at 90hp.
