Thats bad luck with your engine guys. Although the damage is quite local to one rod assembly, could have been worse!
Looks like plenty of oil was getting to the failed rod, no blueing of the damaged bits, no molten bits of metal. Looks to me like the rod nuts have come loose and have left the building.
Rod bolts are strong but will snap in a brutal situation like that if the nuts hang on that is.
Lovely looking car, I'd be feeling crappy to see mine that way. Hope the repairs go well.

Were these the early rods that were known to be bad, or the later rods?

yes they are 1R rods

1R rods were found in all 92 (Early 93) 93 and probably half of all 94 model year GTS's

But the rod design is not the issue, here.

There's a huge difference between great products and good marketing.

I'm all about the great products.

Yes. Unique to GTS cranks.

Hopefully no one is still having stroker cranks built with 8 counterweights. That's right up there with running Chevy rods.

yeah it appears it was the bearing , or was it oiling which caused the bearing to disappear?

Chicken or the egg?

Loose rod nuts would be my verdict looking at it from quite a distance though

Sadly its very likely at least one cylinder wall will have damage due to extra metal in circulation. Hopefully so mild that oversize piston will fix it.

Hacker, you should see my day job. At least that elephant is alive.....

Besides, it was a GTS motor, not a 426 Chrysler.

Racing just hasn't been exciting enough lately so I've been trying out a few other hobbies.
