200kSpecB Posted June 10, 2017 Share Posted June 10, 2017 Just finished splitting the block on my 08 spec B and I'm hoping for some help from people who know a lot more than I do Some might recognize me but the gist of the story is I got both P0011/21 codes, drove the car a couple kms home and parked it there since March. When I finally got into it, it was clear that I had metal in the oil. My main question now is: How much of this longblock is salvageable? I'm not opposed to getting a new SB and even new heads but mostly out of curiosity's sake I was wondering if anything could be saved. This is one of the main bearings, some significant scoring can be seen. I noticed these "cracks" between cylinders 1 and 3, not sure if this is normal or something of concern. This is one of the camshafts. Here you can see the worst of the damage done to the heads. And finally this is the block under one of the main bearings. I can't upload my picture of the crank for whatever reason but it looks similar to the camshaft, all rods moved freely with no resistance and I never spun any bearing, just lots and lots of scoring... Thanks for all the help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
