SNAP ring

so the y7 started knocking and it turns out that after i pulled the pan to check the bearings and found nothing, with a magnet in the pan i pulled three parts of a snap ring. What now. The problem is that my scat rods are floating and my nippon pistons are also floating so my pistons were cut for snap rings

that sucks. so, the piston is hitting the head? or no?
I say buy some Vitara's with new pins, snap rings, and piston rings.
likely the pin has scored the cylinder wall, likely even a 1mm overbored won't get rid of the scoring.
i figured it fucked the cylinder wall also so i picked up a y8 complet accept for 4 rocker arms and the bolts for the cam retainer just gona swap my head over and call it good for now. also i did a comp test and aftre 3 turns all 4 cylinders showed at 148 is that ok or not?
Usually I'd say if all 4 are within 10% of each other it'd be okay. But it can't be good... Seems a little low to me. Get that other engine, slap the good head on(check for damage though) and you're good to go!
i have an adjustabel cam gear and a stage two cam could the reason for low numbers be overlap cuz those pistons have a hella dome with molly rings i just wonder wtf compression calculater says 13 to 1 whats to expect of that?
