Metal Shavings in oil

Yea find some metal shaving in the pan yesterday had a knocking noise before that so i took it back to YAS where i bought it for my warrenty and they said they fixed the timing tensorner or something like that and the noise was still there and they said they have no clue what it was so i took it back cuz i didnt have anything to drive then one morn leaving work i started it up and the noise i was like 10 times worse and i took it to my buddys garage so he could find out what it was and thats when we find the shaving in the oil bearing are shot and maybe some rocker arms so to get to my question should i rebuild this motor or buy a new one

Camaro to VDUB and lovin it

Magnetic Drain Plug..

I'd start with a magnetic drain plug on the oil pan before I would tear anything apart.

BillyBob I know yours is faster but its a Vr so i would hope it would beat my 2.0 LOL. But i am kinda thinking you should get a new engine and put in there then give me the blown one so i can swap it in mine after i rebuild to be turbo vr! Now if that anit an idea i don't know waht is!
