    Unfortunately we did not make it to the water crossings before the knocking started. Although spectating on the second day of the rally we did see the Tiburon hydrolock and throw the rods out the side of the engine.
    We still think it was an oil pump problem but the bend rod is strange.

    the fact that it was the #1 rod leads me to think the oil pressure problem started it all. Could the rod have been bent the whole time? i.e. did you ever have the rod out of the block before this/do a compression test?

    We did have all the rods out. We weight matched the rods and pistons. I am sure we would have seen the bent rod if it was bent then.
