Serious Problem with blown rods!

Since I have heard of piston rods shooting through people's hoods, it brought up a question. I will have a serious problem if the "horizontally opposed" boxer engine blows a rod into the cabin of my vehicle. I, being the "health nut" that I am, am VERY picky about what goes into my body, and a 2 foot long metal rod (covered in molybidneum(sp?) or not) could be considered detrimental to the regimen I am on. Anyone else have any concerns? :p

Aren't the pistons going side-to-side as opposed to front-to-back?

Meaning they'll go through the fenders?

Or am I just crazy?

Nope - no concerns here :D
I'm honored to have been of service. :)

I suppose there's only one thing left to do... DANCE... DANCE... DANCE!!!
