new engine

I just got my car back after having one of the valves number 1 brake at 3k . The dealer told me and aswell as svt that the valve failure was due to improper heat treating or bad matieral. The entire engine was replaced, so far it runing alot better than the other one did. It's sucks to hear some of you guys have got bad treatment at dealers, cause my car was washed,waxed, and detailed just like it was when it frist took delivery of the car. I'm happy to get it back.

nice to hear a dealership took care of you. Although it doesn't surprise me as that work was probably done under warranty.
