One of my friends worked at the Desert Proving grounds and they got about 250 miles out of a Cavalier with no oil. They ran a Corvette with the ZR-1 with no coolant and it never seized- it just burned up the gaskets.
No the engine performed perfect. The knock did not start until the next time on the water. Started it up on the trailer and immediatly heard the noise. The engine still has full compression and is not locked up.
