It CAN be repaired but if it happened once with it... MTL will happen again.

Are you mechanically inclined to pull an engine ?

Get with them to see what they can fix it for. Is it your daily driver ?

The block that I am running had a cracked liner.. I had all 4 sleeved.. make sure you can find a shop that can do it. Most shops can not fit our blocks into the machine since they are designed for a typical v style motor..
