Going down this line as my last pump was a 11mm and the guy who rebuilt the heads runs the same in a 2.5 with sillier cams as mine

You'll never get a warranty on a performance/modified engine apart from workmanship. I've got you beat too... my engine lasted 9,000km but having said that it was "only" a head gasket and not dokdok. The engine has been stripped completely for peace of mind and the crank and big end bearings all look good. I dare say due to good tuner...
