    i never knew water could do that much damage. i certainly didnt think water could put a hole in the block. or break rods.

    i drove through a big puddle and i'd say 4 cups worth was sitting on top of the pistons when i first looked down onto the pistons...

    overall though...its impossible to tell...although the smallest amount of water can still bend rods...i just happened to ingest more than the average...

    it doesnt, its actually the most condensed form, since when you freeze it, water becomes a crystal and expands again.

    well, for practical purposes water doesn't compress.

    i don't care about something scientists can accomplish in a lab...i'm concerned about the effect water has on a motor...

    I'll post pics of my dead piston later tonight... it's out of the block and it's a lot worse than I thought. Let's have a "kablooie engine" day.

    Do it. Also run some of the liquid nitro methanol or what ever that stuff is. Make 4 little circles impression in your hood.
