This is where you will see bent valves, rods, etc. It is not uncommon to see Type 1's, but if it is more than 10 again I would think about it. It would mean that the car had hit the fuel cutoff and been past redline more than 10 times since it was new.
That's a very good idea. I will make sure to have them do that. The dealer and I have been in communication via email since I am 450 miles away. I assume if I just request this they will do it and send me a pdf of the results.
