    It appears to have seized rings, we are determining the cause by looking at data and analysis.

    Nice job. At least someone is re-building these engines and not making coffee tables out of them.

    Haha, indeed. We perform all work and services on any exotic motor/vehicle instead of turning them into tables.

    We are still working on it however at this moment the ring seize seems to be caused by oil degradation and possibly fuel contamination.

    No, we do not have pictures of the rings. We will see if we can capture some. If so, I shall post them.

    What's the cost of the re-build? Just curious? You can PM me.

    Nice Job guys. We just did a full rebuild as well due to overheating.
