Not your fault. If the rod was going to let go, your neighbors would have heard it knocking. He wound it up and kept it there like Billy ****** and it bit him.

Id say nothing but, if you feel like it, suggest a rev limiter for his next motor.
The ONLY way you pitch a rod with that kind of force in 60 minutes of owning a new car is acting like a 19yr old.
