Wow congrats.

Remove the spark plugs and spin the engine by hand a couple of time to try and pump put all the water. Remove all the charge pipes and intercooler and clean them out with compressed air. Remove the exhaust system including the exhaust manifold and drain out any water. Replace the spark plugs, air filter, and change the oil. See if it will start and see how it runs. Maybe you will get lucky.

It didn’t just let the head gasket go, it bent a rod I can’t turn the engine it’s done I need a lb at least now I’m worried my turbo & cat is cooked but it shut right off while doing 130kph at 3000rpm in 6th gear lol
Metal came out of the oil/coolant from the drain plug

Ok. Sounds like you need to do a complete rebuild. Best of luck and hope it all works out.

Why was ther metal in the oil from hydro-lock or bending a rod. There is something else really broken?

I’d say it touched the cyl wall & shaved it but she’s at the machine shop I’ll know what happened 100% Friday
