    Right, it's alarming. It's coming out so fast it makes me worry that there was hydrolock-induced damage in the very short time it continued rolling after the injector failed open.

    You can always compression or leakdown test the motor.

    Ah, interesting. So would that be a catch-all for any damage that would have occurred? I havenít done one of those before.

    If you had a bent rod, even in the slightest, the compression test would be off alot.

    Got this guy, for leak down test:

    I want to avoid messing with turning over the engine (so I'm going to do leak-down instead of compression), when fuel stuff is disconnected/not in nominal state, partially out of paranoia, and partially as a result of Justin B8's experience of an engine fire, resulting from the high-pressure fuel pump still having a bit of fuel left in it (despite the low pressure fuel pump fuse already having been pulled). (Thanks for sharing that, Justin... probably saving a ton of people from having to deal with the same.)
