A little background first. Production 4.1 291 block with stock crank/rods, hyper pistons apx 6k and 20 passes on it. Motor has been running fine for two years never skipped a beat. Last month I had alky installed and the boost/tune adjusted accordingly. Then drove it to Kirbans open house. On the return trip I started loosing oil pressure to the point were it was 0-5psi at idle but no knocking or abnormal noises. This was verified with a mechanical gauge. Oil pan was pulled and all of the main bearings had excessive uniform wear but nothing was spun and there was a fine grit in the pan like trash had went through it. Motor was pulled and what was found in the back of the passenger side head could only be described as coarse, beach-like sand and not magnetic. Piston skirts were also torn up and valve guides were damaged. This has never showed up before in the oil or filter. How could this happen? Some have called it "casting sand" but this seems unlikely. Others have suggested possible vandalism. Basically I'm now committed to a full rebuild as it needs a crank, pistons, bearings, heads rebuilt, etc etc. As long as the block checks out the plan is to do a build similar to Full Throttle's 4.1 except with a stroker crank.
