I agree.  If it were residual damage resultant from detonation in the process of tuning or something, that would be more understandable.  But if in fact the break is due to cylinder liner wear, I don't know that the wear would be that accelerated with say an average of double the stock output.

I also put 40k on a car in a year sometimes, so for me it's hard to imagine a properly conceived and clearanced setup like that to just reach end of life at that type of mileage.

 

It is really hard to believe the problem was bore sizing. We went with Wiseco's spec on that, and the measured wear when I took it apart was not much over that. 

I can see 40K being OK in terms of life span in some situations, however the skirt breakage seems abnormal. I'm planning on sending them up to Trent if my guy has no word from his Wiseco rep.

Did you post what the clearance was?

Trimmed up the quote a bit.

Since the volume of fluid has increased the volume of expansion also increases. I didn't measure the fill volume so I don't know how much I added, but I think it's 10-20% more with the torque converter cooler no longer required (MT swap) as well as the increased core depth, by about inch/2.

If you haven't had any issues it makes me curious if I'm having a different cooling issue. I assume the PN on the reservoir is common between MT/AT.

Wanted to clarify this post (years later) that I found a hairline crack on the expansion tank cap shortly after this post, and a hairline crack on the reservoir itself a year-or-so later. These had both been causing me to overflow coolant. There is no expansion issue that I've found, as-supported by others' findings.
