Hopefully, I will take a lesson from all this, and HOPEFULLY, that will be what a great company they are in honoring true failures under warranty.
Are you sure it is a bottom end failure?You made no mention of noises which are a very good indication of bottom end problems.Rough running could could be caused by valve spring issues which were not uncommon in one batch of 08 production engines.
