Default blown pistons

one of my pistons broke, from my understanding due to high rpm and the thing shoots out oil when i go to high now, will this lead to crack cylinder or any other problems? the people are tellin me its goin to cost me roughly 2000$ to repair, but i'm thinking what the hell? its just a piston and the rings, but they said its running low pressure also, anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

probably shot your rings. it would be hard to crack a sleeve. 20+ psi of boost sometimes cracks sleeves.

so that would just required a replacing a piston and the ring right? i don't think that would cost 2 grand...

if you take it out it might not be the rings alone.. its probably the ring lands also. they are pretty weak IMO.

is it using alot of oil?

the 2 grand is probably for labor.. the labor rate where im at varies between 50-85/hr. you'll have to have the cylinder rehoned at least so it seals. so you might want to think about swapping a stock or other engine in if you have the funds
