Well I was ticking and I wanted to know if it was a bent valve and i took off the intake mani to get the valve cover off and that is what I found in the intake. it was in the actual intake in the bottom of the valley. just sitting in a pool of oil. The oil can be contributed to the supercharger pulling it through most likely but the metal?????????? I have a mechanic for a neighbor and he was like WTF?! I have no idea bro! lol
my first thought was they look like piston rings a bit, but obviously they wouldn't be in your intake manifold... so i dont know. like mentioned already, you may just need to open up more and see what you find (maybe a quick compression test before hand?)
Race car driving is alot like sex, every guy thinks hes good at it.
piston ring was my first thought too. the bend on the long piece looks about right to go around a piston, definately not tight curved enough to be a valve spring. the way the little stuff is bent though i have no idea, probably got chewed up circulating through the oil though. but why something like that would be in the intake i have no effing clue.
mustang wasnt fast enuff so...
