First mini turbo to get in the 12's & site perv

Herefordshire

Whoops!
How did that happen?

Edit: just read the rest of the thread, it happened last year then?
Has the valve just seized up, or is there more at fault?

I think since I got the new guides in that they are a bit tight on the exhaust side. It was the first time I really pushed the car since the head rebuild so I think it got up to temp and pinched. I'll order a new valve and rebuild the head, maybe ream the guides a bit more. Piston wise there is a clear mark on the crown and a bit of a bur at the edges of the mark but I don't see anything else wrong. I am assuming the piston is ok to reuse?

Minispares EN21 4N and bronze manganese guides. I've not gone over 15psi, I was barely on 10psi when it happened.

So yeah itís just that one valve thatís tight, I got the bent valve out and found a few spare valves left over after the last fiasco. They measure up fine so tried one of those, definitely tight in the guide even at room temp, whereas the other guides are fine. Iím gonna dress the mark on the piston a bit then put the head together and slap it on.
