Yeah, a friend of mine just got a CA18DET from SOKO (his previous motor
snapped the oil return line from the turbo and it seized).  He put it in
his car, went to crank it, and it went "knock knock boom."  One of the
pistons completely shattered.  Suprisingly the rod  and crank were fine
though.  But he was pissed, to say the least.

So he sent the engine back to them, and decided he's just gonna build up
a CA18 motor with forged pistons, shot peened rods, etc., and go all
out.  (looking for 350-400HP @ground..yeah baby).
