looks like someone's just looking for an excuse to build their shortblock haha. for my first glance i thought they were valve spring retainers until i saw the long piece. then i thought piston rings.

yea but what else could it be from? I don't see any damage inside the procharger or in the intercooler so I have NO idea what the heck is wrong. I'm just going to pull the heads and see the cylinder damage. Its gay. But oh well new MMR600 shortblock and heads coming soon!
