The engine is back together, replaced the spray bars, put the damaged rockers back in ......just kidding, flushed the system as best I could, new rockers, elephant feet, rocker shafts and reinstalled the original SC cam the Special Wishes people had in there in the first place. Later, I'll using Dougherty 964 cams in the car, but now, I just want to drive it!

Don't get me wrong, the extreme oil temperatures were the culprit. I really do feel the synthetic oils give you that extra margin of safety on the turbocharger bearing and valve train when it comes to events like this.

These engines ARE not designed for low engine speeds. Never lug the engine below 2K RPM and never, never allow yourself to sit stuck in a traffic jam for extended periods of time. There just isn't enough oil volume going to the heads to keep the temps down.
