    Maybe if you hydro-locked the motor with gas. If you're running rich, I believe most you'd see with the pistons is just extra build-up/soot.

    If the fuel pressure was set at stock, then there's no way it could be dumping a large amount of extra fuel...though too little fuel and improper timing can cause detonation which could kill pistons. What ECU are you using btw?

    seems unlikely that excess fuel damaged the pistons. all b series injectors are 240cc by the way. if the car was running THAT rich you should have known... bad exhaust smell, popping sounds from exhaust while decelerating, hesitation when trying to accelerate, etc.

    lsvtecs will never run to their full potential on a stock or "chipped" ecu. spend the money and get it tuned properly, its worth it.

    too much fuel can cause wash out. with 240cc injectors, i doubt it's possible unless you have a severely wrong chip/progam in there
