Formula for disaster. Stock 2.0 Magnum Neon rods/pistons, lots of boost and lean air/fuel mixture ratio.

These pistons and rods were taken out of a stock block 02 Neon RT that had a turbo strapped to it, too much boost and lean of a fuel mixture.
These took a BEATING and failed! Bent rods, cracked ringlands and scoring on the skirts were all part of the damage.
