It depends how long water was in that cylinder if it was long enough to scar the cylinder wall and the machining cost is a lot with the parts then you probably need a new motor I would have them take that head off and look at the cylinder walls

What ended up happening? $4000 for a motor or $1000 for headgaskets is alot of money. If you caught it quick then head gaskets will be fine :cool:
