This was where i first saw the shrapnel !
I think i've flushed about 2-3ccm of Aluminium out of the IC and surrounding
My hope was, at first, that the temp in the combustion chamber was high
enough to soften the Al thus making it (a lot) more harmless.
-But as i pulled the injectors, they were also full of Al-shrapnel.

Sh*t happens !
