Anyone have any thoughts on what might have caused the disintegration of
piston #5?

#5 piston seriously decomposing around the top edge, gas escaping past the
top ring.... My guess on my failure is #5 piston's material polluted the oil
and wiped out #2 rod bearing, spun/siezed, #2 rod snapped, big holes in
block, oil on hot EM = FIRE!!!

Check-out the failure pics:
