i left the car sitting overnight. i had vaccumed out the water in the morning but the water had a lot of dirt so ?? when i got the piston out the cyl. walls didnt show any type of wear on them so it was strange . also about the redline revv im asking cause my bro had borrowed it to go out of town so i dont know if that has that type of stress on rods.

see you didn't say it was 2 months ago. i thought you meant that it was before your rod broke... so no it wasn't a hydrolock then

well okk i did rev to the point where the engine revs out. ok besides that my main question was are the maintainance items like spark plugs, wires, timing belt, water pump, interchangeable between d's ?? seeing how i'm getting my jdm d15b this week
