On a nearly unrelated note, valves bend usually due to extremely high revving, aka moneyshifting, abuse, etc.
I understand that, but the shop in question had msged me saying that the oil cooler breaking off couldn't of caused a bent valve.
The no oil caused the valve to seize in the valve guide, causing it to hit the piston and then bending.
Also the whole top end of engine cams, lifters etc are scored, due to loss of oil.
