Broken camshaft on 3.6 !!

So at 68k km's my left hand crankshaft has cracked !!

Head had been replaced about 1yr ago due to "the tick"..
Dealer is replacing both heads.. thankfully had about 2 weeka left on my warranty.. Dealer says it's the 1st they have heard of in Australia and I can only find 3 other references to it online on the US forums.. Hopefully not a sign of things to come with this motor..

Good thing I decided against a Sprintex until after my warranty had expired !

Wow, something had to seriously go wrong to break a cam. Unless there was a problem with the cam itself. Generally, if a cam stops moving on a engine that's still spinning bad shit happens.

Need pics.
