my bet is there is something foreign floating around in the cylinder that shouldn't be there and it munched off the glow plugs...

Just wondering if this is a common issue for these tips to drop as Ive heard about it before. Wondering from some of the shops on here like Morgan and Jared if this is something they see. Congrats on the awesome build though!!!
Not sure if its common but I've had it tuned and ******d for about 25,000 miles and I do drive it pretty hard. I've heard of losing an injector but I lost compression on 2 cyclinders so it's more than just an injector.

Trying to look on the bright side... now I'm getting my turbo swap a little sooner than expected haha.

You should do 40% nozzles why you are at it.

^^whs nozzles would be worth it.

Have you torn down his old engine yet to do more failure analysis? Or just a case of a glow plug tip coming off? Is that something that youve seen before?

No we haven't torn it down. Petes truck was DOA, and we are going to work it in as soon as we can. We probably won't strip the old one until after his build is done. He opted to start with a fresh built long block

Nothing much to update with the build to date. Just playing the waiting game for parts. Hopefully pulling the trans next week to be sent out for the upgrade and then whenever the parts come in start to assemble the longblock.

But if anyone wants an S&B Intake I'll be selling the one off this truck when it's done since the Elite Kit comes with it's own intake.
