I have seen a few cracked pistons and cars still ran just not that great. How about the melted piston thats the one I was refering too. There were many warning signs on that one that were ignored or it was a turbo runaway and could not be stopped.

Hey I never said the nozzles threw my Rod...At no point did I say that. I don't know what caused it. People Trolling this need to stop. I do not blame the nozzles one bit. Ran VAG-COM to double check everything found nothing out of place. I trust the Nozzles I would use them again.

The melted 1Z piston came from a junk yard engine - so I never got a chance to ask the owner "What The **** is wrong with you?!?"... The other 3 pistons from that motor look good, so it wasn't a turbo failure based runaway. Most of the aluminum that melted off that piston ended up bonded to the bottom of the head, and in the exhaust port - mixed with a ton of carbon, pieces of the rings... The cylinder walls are wrecked beyond repair - I don't think going to 81.5mm would even clean them up. The motor could be turned over by hand though, and the rods, crankshaft, Intermediate shaft are all fine. The Turbocharger however is not - it's had some minor "modifications" to the exhaust wheel by the bits of piston that passed through it.

Agree. If the damage caused to that 1Z piston (which was most likely a bad injector) didn't throw a rod - I can't imagine how bad a nozzle would need to be to throw a rod!

I will probably be buying a set of Titan nozzles for my GTI. I can't find any reason not to.

I put 10k on these nozzles. Without one problem. If I end up with another ALH I will have these nozzles. Good luck with your Build.

I know that but the one real troll here planted the seed that if you had bought bosio it would not have happen. Thats what sent this thread in this direection. I was simply saying a bad nozzle will not cause an engine to throw a rod not if the nozzle worked well enough to drive the car with out smoke.
Bottom line is he is a troll pimping bosio nozzles and because you went a different route (titian nozzles) that must have been the problem. One thing I hate about this site it like they try to lead the sheep to on pasture. I like to graze multiple pastures I dont like all my eggs in one basket either. lol

Sorry for you car though.

Really passing along your great experience with bosio is all good but thats not what you did. You tried to bash titian nozzles by insenuating that the nozzles cause his engine to blow. So you sir are the one that should grow up and go back to tdi school.

Bad nozzles can blow up diesel's period. If you do something then your engine blows up its worth investigating.
Too bad the car was traded in... we will never know...and thats a fact

You guys are all speacial for blowing this thread up with endless fighting over unknown facts of more than one engine failure.

Wars are fought over religion, money, land, and brand of injectors for a TDI

Damn Dave. You must have been hiding in my Tool Box when I was doing this Mod. How do you know it was my last mod??? Did I say that is was my last Mod?? No I did not!! You are Bashing Nozzles you are bashing me. Why?? What did my Nozzles ever do to you? What did my car ever do to you? I have over 10k miles on the nozzles and over 240k on the engine. I don't think me lossing my engine had anything to do with my nozzles or the fact that I CHECKED....not adjusted my IQ with VAG-COM. Dude you are making this stupid. Please stop reading in to what I write and if you have something constuctive to add please do. If not Kindly Shut your Mouth!!!
