If there is catastrophic damage that they can demonstrate for you, then I would trust there opinion. We have seen several that chains have broken on, and only one required engine replacement. If it is just a broken chain, often some sprockets, tensioners, and chains have resolved them. As far as I know, the pistons do not interfere with the valving to the point that collision will occur if timing is lost. With all this water you say you encountered, has there been any mention that it ingested water and hydrolocked causing damage?
