Picked up my mates new car yesterday and drove best part of 3 hrs to collect it,5k later and 2hrs into the journey home car was running fine then all of a sudden the car died under boost and lots of smoke etc came out of the back.
The first thought was head gasket failure after we plugged the computer in and had cylinder misfire come up, we have stripped the car down today and the piston on cylinder 1 is deformed and looks like it has melted??
The car is running 300bhp and has vxr turbo etc etc.
I want to know why this could of happened and what should we do now as i dont want to get it fixed up for him and the same happen again!
Also any advise on uprated parts recommended while its in so many pieces??
