"Most" of the time it's caused by to much timing for the octane or effective compression ratio running. It also looks like you had oil migration into the combustion process which can also be a major contributor to detonation in a blown application. The detonation unseats or rattles the rings which make oil migration even worse so it goes from bad to worse in a hurry.
I would also suggest you not run the gas ported pistons on the replacement set if the blower is continued.

Was it run with no coolant?
