A forensic engineer may be a wise investment. I have used one before after a claim was initially rejected and he sent the bill to the insurer.

I have used a forensic engineer before when my "reconditioned" Volvo boat engine blew up after just 70 hours.
It was a bit hard up at Orange because the engine was in and out and many components cleaned and changed over. But I will email and ask them to retain the engine in case there is a problem.
Many thanks

I have emailed them and asked them to hold onto it for a while.

They are worth money for the mobs that rebuild them. Did you replace both turbos?  Can't remember, but a good one of those is worth a bit as well.
And a look at the "bad" turbo may tell you what warranted an engine change ?

We replaced the passenger side one and reused the other one which was mint.
