I hear you man, and now I have to most likely find a new motor as the rebuild cost of the head is as much as a used S54.

Quickid - I am currently looking at the different options I have to get compensated, just waiting to see which route i want to go with this.

I was also wondering if the following statement is true or not: The S54 (or any engine) does not rely on engine oil to keep the head/engine cool.

So if the oil cooler broke off and all the engine oil poured out the side of my car, my head would still be ok and my valve(s) would not be bent? Please educate me.
