It doesn't appear to be.. the only damage I've seen so far is what's shown in the pictures.

And that really is the point isn't it? And, exactly what I said to him.

Bought these from BGF... my second motor from him, along with some parts. Last year. Was pretty pleased up until now. I thought I was being EXTREMELY reasonable by saying "Hey, look at these pics! Just send me a replacement part and I'll be happy!" Frankly, I'm pretty PO'd at his responses. Oh well, what are you going to do? Here's what he told me:

first I don't want to argue with the other people opinions.
different people has different thought.

my personal opinion, it will not effect any thing of the performance. tighten the 4 nuts on the engine head after run awhile. *and the aluminium gasket will seal the un-flat space. so it is the reason of the gasket and it is the reason using*aluminium not the steel gasket.
the piston up down in middle. the scratch place never effected.*
suggest u change the*aluminum*head gasket since u open the engine head, the old gasket can not use. *if u still worry, u can add 2 head gasket
feel free to email us

To which I told him that it DOES affect the performance, the motor ran for about 100' and then died with a popping sound. I only took it apart to see what was wrong with it because I knew he'd want "proof". He responded with:

no problem if u want to exchange the cylinder.
but it is not*necessary.
we sold thousands of the engine, we know where the problem will effect the*performance.

So.. BoyGoFast, unfortunately in my opinion, is NOT a reputable seller. I advise anyone to stay away from him.
