Sounds like a rod went. Did you ever ingest water. Ever? Loud bang and no coolant? I bet you have a hole in the side of your cases.

I purchased my 07 rxp brand new and it dropped a valve in the first dam 30 min. on the water. Took it back to dealer and was down for 2 1/2 months.

Hmm sounds interesting, best you take it to your local top tech and get it sorted. Don't worry he will look after you
Sounds like he will be busy monday!!

180 hours shouldnt be a factor should it? Its not that many

He had 80 hrs on the rebuilt charger.....that is quite a bit. Some last 100 hrs, some not as many. It was about time for a second rebuild also it sounds like. Pull the charger, and check if the motor will spin over after. If the charger is good, then blown head gasket,or worse(blown rod) and hydro locked the motor. Pull the plugs to see if coolant comes out the holes.
