Yeah I don't have time to skim through this thread to find out what happened. But I'm curious as to know how this fine German engineered vehicle failed.

If you indeed have an injector issue, just put a screwdriver on the injectors and listen. I do that when diagnosing injectors. Also, watch the injector pressure. I had to dial back my HPFP multiplier to keep pressure below 3000. I was constantly popping injectors. If the seal to the head is bad it’ll also produce a loud tick

Both sets of injectors are (probably) fine. Gonna still try and get them flow tested though.........cylinders 2 & 3 have no compression annnnnnnnnnnd when scoped using a mirror, I have bent valves. So I'm waiting to hear back about a fully assembled ported and polished head. Fuck. My. Life.

Pistons are fine, so the bottom end is safe at least.

Sorry to hear but a ported and polished head should get you where you want to be in the 1/4!

Bent valves from knock? Only used to bending valves due to dumb nissan timing belt issues. Doesn't sound like this is the case?
