Yea, I'm comfortable with the shop and their attention to detail. I did ask about bent rods, and they had already measured them up. No issue there. The short block came from Ford Strokers. The motor was apart aster the initial startup when the oil pump drive gear sheared, but I can't see the parts changing and causing pistons hitting the crank. I'm not exactly sure what happened and can't point any fingers, but it does look like the block could have been machined to better tolerances and better attention to detail should have been taken at some point.
