    Buy a new engine and keep the blown one and do a monster build on a stand. Watch it progress into a monster.
    Then when it's ready chuck it in the car.

    this is why people should know what is happening when they are mapping an engine, when I go for my map , my laptop will be hooked up to my LPG ECU where I can watch the Lambda sensor and I will be telling them to tweak the map if I see ANY lean spots in the map, in other words I will be the customer from hell for the mapper I go to ( still haven't chosen) but let me get this right your car threw a conrod on the bottom end ?!
    kind regards
