Alrighty. I was passing on a single lane highway (not flogging on it. Just 1/2 thorttle) at about 120kph when there was a not so loud pop from under the hood with a puff of blue smoke. FIgured I blew a ic boot off. No power. Pull off the road and chrck for DTC's. Lost #8 cylinder cotribution and #6 and #8 glowplugs curcit open. Popped the hood and took a look. #6 and #8 glow plugs gone... I mean not even in the heads anymore. So back to stock and in to the dealership.:bang

I think you would have had alot of coolant blow out as well though, i would need to look in the bible if there surrounded by coolant.
