ok... a few q's.
1. How long has the engine been running?
2. Where did the pushrod come from? ( same cyls as the h.g. damage?)

By the looks of the head gaskets, they either weren't on the engine very long or weren't torqued properly. None of the "blue stuff" stuck to the head or block. Were the heads torqued properly?... I'm assuming the pushrod is bent although it doesn't look like it in the pic. Is that the only one that bent? I'm assuming that you used head studs .... they don't stretch. The piston would fail long before a stud stretched. It sounds to me like the heads werent torqued properly... .Any more info you could give me?




Sorry... I just read your other post.

Head bolts can stretch.. to be sure measure each bolt's length and compare... Should be pretty easy to see if they all stretched on one side. Were they new bolts? Or used? I would go with everyone's recomendation and use head studs and better gaskets and take baby steps with the boost.

That does look suspect that the blue is still on there. That torque too is nutty. Make sure everything is flat (heads block).
After blowing my hg, I was grateful that I did not bust a piston. So not sure if I'm a fan of hg that don't act as a fuse.
