2014 Piston Failure - Need Advice

Recommended Posts

Failure at 10 hrs.   Hit valves, bent crank, ruined cylinder.   I need:

gaskets

pistons and rings and wristpin, etc

Valves

Crank

Cylinder

 

What should I do?  $2K in parts.  Fix it.  Can I buy a whole engine?  Part it?  What would you do?

I would rebuild. Send the head in and see if you can buy a complete kit with crank piston and gaskets. I believe wrench rabbit would have everything. That way you know what you have instead of starting with a used motor for 2 grand. Put 1500 into yours and make it like new again.

I found a wrench rabbit bottom kit for a 2013.  I think it will fit a 2014.  Just wanted to be sure.
