Is it ok to use again after catastrophic failure (valve fell into cylinder) forged aftermarket conrods? Engine block and piston are trash, but conrod looks straight and there aren’t any visually noticeable defects or damages.

These are the conrods which were used:

Get them checked at a machine shop, that will tell you if they're still straight and good. The tdi has very tight tolerances, so I wouldn't risk without getting them checked.
