Timing jumped as you stated,piston to valve contact occured beating the roller on the lobe, I would be surprised if the roller for that lobe was not at least cracked.

No, this is the J35Z3. Manual transmission motor.

Here is the weird thing, this happened on both camshafts. Not just the side that was out of timing.
Th rear head is the one that slipped. The front head was in time still.

I'm a Honda tech and have seen this before. It's more common on the K20 accords but also happens on the J30/32/35. The hardening of the metal wears down on the lobe

I know when there was oil consumption issues, Honda would repair the motors in question. Any any way. The shop that just rebuilt my motor told me that they have seen this on another Honda. Or, on non roller type cams as well. And that was due to a lack of oil on the non roller ones. Pitting is something that just should not happen on our type of cams. Any way, if you have any advice on what I should say to Honda to see if they can help me out on the repair, I would be grateful. I would have liked to been able to have Honda repair my oil consumption issue. But, I have the 6-6. So, no VCM. Therefore no reimbursement or repair from them.

Depends on your service history and where you purchased it. They are more likely to help a customer that either bought their car at that dealer or have serviced it there. But there's 2 ways of asking for help... One is having the dealer contact the Honda rep (which is when it's good to have a history with that dealer since they are vouching for you) or just contact them yourself. Honda has a "good will" warranty for good customers that are out of warranty. Sometimes it is a 50/50 split, sometimes they cover the part and you pay labor etc. it's definitely worth talking to Honda because most people that have a ligitimate complaint end up getting help. That's if you're having the work done at the dealer. Make sure you tell them you have always kept up with your oil changes and maintenance.

I am going to go with, no. I purchased the car with 108,000 on it two years ago. And from what the dealer told me, the previous owner did all the work them selves. So, there is no way to prove that they did their oil changes in a good time frame. Same goes for me. I have been doing all of my own oil changes and basic work. But, I just had a motor machine shop do the complete rebuild from the bottom to the top. But, thank you for your response. Completely appreciated.

Yeah it's usually for cars that are barely out of warranty... Either over on miles but within time or over on time but within miles or just barely out. I had a bad catalytic converter on my car within time but was over on miles. They covered the part and I "paid" for labor but I'm a tech there so it was just a free part that I installed
