A single intake valve seat let loose and basically hammered the **** out of cyl#4, then somehow made it's way into cylinders 1 & 3 by way of either the intake manifold or the egr ports.

Looks like a horseshoe is stamped onto those pistons haha!

If it passed through the EGR at least you know it's not clogged! :P
