Well I guess we'll never know for sure but there were no signs of excessive EGT's. Pistons showed no pick-marks/melting typical for lean mixture (actually I believe piston survived but was binned beacuse of ovality). Head just exploded...clean break edges, no melting. It's somewhat atypical operating range for OEM 3.6 head though...
