As above, completely forgot about the dct side of things, on compression you will feel reasonable resistance.

Hi everyone,

Since my last post I have gotten the car into neutral and unfortunately had no luck hand turning the engine still. I'm well aware this is bad news but still chasing any possibilities.

It has become very obvious the starter is bad and given that the starter spools but does not engage the flywheel I've been questioning weather the Starter drive is lodged into the flywheel due to the attempted test starts with the insurance company. I figure this could lock up the engine and prevent cranking.

Any thoughts on this?

I would recommend at a minimum pulling the spark plugs and scoping the top of the motor. Also, can't remember if you've changed the oil out yet but I would send some off to Blackstone. Do as much diagnosis as you can without actually getting to the point of starting the motor.
