Otherwise everything they did seems to make sense and they did service almost all the bank #2 cylinders for good measure.
Good call on the scoring Vic! SA called me yesterday and said that there was scoring on the cylinder so the wanted to change the entire block. Unfortunately there isn't one in the US so to save time they are pushing to replace the entire engine which they have in CA. Obviously this is what I wanted in the first place so I'm reconsidering whether or not to I'm going to lemon the car.
