Default Stock piston detonation.

I blew up my BP with speed6 k04 this weekend. I knew it was going to happen, but was expecting rods. Well i found extreme detonation/ melting on piston number three. No other pistons show any signs of detonation. My beliefe is that this was caused by lack of fuel in that one cylinder, most likely a clogged injector. Am i wrong thinking this?

I thought that was a Subie thing. They do the same on the Mazdaspeeds? That's fun.

Local subie autox guys are always blowing turbos. They're both shitty and have "04" in them, you expect me to know the difference?
