Have to pull the engine, check the bottom end, total clutch height with flywheel to compare with stock, in case that has fucked the thrust bearing, causing the engagement/disengagement part of the problem...

A bent valve AND bearing issues? I assume that logged 9600rpm is some kind of error. If not, well of course you killed it.

Not logging error I believe, the motor over revved when the clutch slipped, first on a 3-4 shift, then on a 4th pull. I tried the 4th pull because I don't see how the master cylinder could have anything to do with the problem if it slipped without shifting.

Until I get it apart it's all speculation on the bottom end & clutch.

Looks like the over revving from the slipping clutch took its toll on the valve train

Valve float is a bitch

Go back to 7600 on TT. I have observed that I can overrev it well over 8000 (even over 8400), sometimes it feels like there is no rev limiter at all.

Huh? You can't blame clutch slip for the motor over revving dude. The rev limiter will enforce the rev limit, clutch slip or not. Assuming it is set appropriately, of course.

If it is set and correctly functioning, then yea if no then all bets are off.

Yes if the rev limiter had of worked the engine would never have gone to 9600rpm. But the rev limiter didnt work and the car over rev`d due to a slipping clutch. Either way its a stuff deal.

Well since Carlisle is over now, he's got no reason to stay with TT.

Rev limit was set at 8k

In the past I always hit fuel cut at 8400

Don't see how that will stop the motor from free revving ?

If the fuel was cut, the engine should stop revving higher. The question then is did the ECU simply not respond to the rising RPMs quickly enough, or did it not cut at all? I would expect a significant change in EGT and AFR if it did actually cut.
