The extra slop in the rod cause it to come up more in the cylinder and hit the valve.

Total damage:
1 broken valve
3 bent valves
1 missing piston
1 piston broken off the rod
2 bent rods
2 cylinder sleeves with chunks missing
cracked block
camshaft scored on a few lobes
both heads need lots of work
windage tray bent
Crank scored up
wow man, you tore it up pretty good

You pretty much took out the whole thing. Time to start over and sell the rest for scrap aluminum.

cool combo! I grenaded my cam only car a couple years ago like that. I never really figured out why it grenaded though, I know the valve head broke off and went piston to head a few times and that caused the piston to bust in a million pieces and fall down into the crankcase and take out a few more rods. The block was completely destroyed, you couldnt even put sleeves in if you wanted to. But the cam/springs/lifters/pushrods were all fine, I even built another motor with them!

+1 for LSX coffee tables!
