MTU 8V 396 diesel engine catastrophic failure

This is a MTU 8V 396 diesel engine blowing up. This video was shown during a rebuild class I just took. Not really sure what happened. My guess would be that it spun a bearing, causing a piston to try and sieze, in turn throwing a rod. Pay attention at 24 seconds to the engine torquing hard to the left and the terrible sound it makes until it lets go...

S13 Top Speed And Engine Failure
testing top speed of 200SX S13 1.8 turbo CA18DET ... blown engine at 240kmh (actual GPS verified speed - rear tires were bigger than stock)... conrod broke in 5th gear at 6400rpm (at top speed and peak power) and was launched trough engine block... on german autobahn, ofcourse... ;) ;) ;) btw... the car was bought for some spare parts, we knew the engine was not that good, but checked all the fluids...after the engine blew it acctualy didnt matter, I really dont like CA engines anyway... right now i have 3 S13's (1 CA i 2 SR) and 1 build S14 SR...

4 of the Best Naturally Aspirated Engines under 1.8 litres!
There are many strong NA(naturally aspirated) engines, but few of them are small and powerfull. Here are my top 4 small capacity engines with big amount of horsepower! NISSAN SR16 NEO VVL TOYOTA 4AGE HONDA B18C TOYOTA/YAMAHA 2ZZ-GE Best of Mazda RX-7 Only HERE! Best Wheels you can find! Bid dish, big concave: In a naturally aspirated engine, air for combustion (diesel cycle in a diesel engine, or specific types of Otto cycle in gasoline engines – namely gasoline direct injection), or an air/fuel mixture (traditional Otto cycle petrol engines) is drawn into the engines cylinders by atmospheric pressure acting against a partial vacuum that occurs as the piston travels downwards toward bottom dead centre during the intake stroke. Owing to innate restriction in the engine's inlet tract which includes the intake manifold, a small pressure drop occurs as air is drawn in, resulting in a volumetric efficiency of less than 100 percent – and a less than complete air charge in the cylinder. The density of the air charge, and therefore the engine's maximum theoretical power output, in addition to being influenced by induction system restriction, is also affected by engine speed and atmospheric pressure, the latter which decreases as the operating altitude increases. This is in contrast to a forced induction engine, in which a mechanically driven Supercharger, or an Exhaust-driven turbocharger is employed to facilitate in increasing the mass of intake air beyond what could be produced by atmospheric pressure alone. As a two-stroke diesel engine is incapable of natural aspiration as defined above, some method of charging the cylinders with scavenging air must be integrated into the engine design. This is usually achieved with a positive displacement blower driven by the crankshaft. The blower does not act as a Supercharger in this application, as it is sized to produce a volume of air flow that is in direct proportion to engine's requirement for combustion, at a given power and speed. By the Society of Automotive Engineer's definition, a mechanically scavenged two-stroke diesel engine is considered to be naturally aspirated.
