bearings

I can't see the pictures either,,, but i really don't need to...

This quote from you

"the day the kit was finished, it was test driven ... HARD ... this resulted in a number of destroyed pistons, because the car wasnt tuned...

so my friend bought new internals, and had the same guys install the internals

the engine was stripped of its head, oil pan, and the rest of the components needed to get at the cylinders, the engine was honed IN THE CAR and the new pistons / rod were dropped in along w/ new rod bearings "

Is where the problem started... You CANNOT get an engine clean enough after parts breakage letting it in the car...then to hone the cylinders on top of that put all the honing grit in places that you cannot clean while the block is in the chassis...

IMO your buddy needs to find a different shop....
