My tuner heard my story yesterday (I had a skunk2 im installed a couple weeks ago and he was re-tuning). He asked me how do I know that the tech working on the car when replacing the valve cover gaskets for me didn't drop something into the well thus, causing a need to take apart the engine.
I said... I didn't think of that at the time.

I wonder if they were hired to take apart my engine for another reason by me could they have done it faster? In other words, did they take such a long time because there were more important cars to work on? Or, because it really is impressive if a shop replaces a piston ring in one night???
...I was just suspicious of your mechanic feeling guilty because he found the problem while the car was in his hands and care. That felt like a red flag, and he was very eager to provide you discounts. Mechanics usually dont do that...
Now that I think about it, potentially, maybe there are even other things going on that I don't know about that the mechanic may have been trying to cover for by saying they needed my car for four working nights.
Maybe I'm just starting to imagine things and I should just let it go. I had to put it out there first, for some second opinions.
