Need to know if this a history of that engine.?
And is 3500 V6 a alum head ?
Do they repace or reface the SOFT alum heads ofton ?
I need this car to run another 50K at least.

My recommendation is to follow the due process with your extended warranty. The repairs should be performed to the terms of this warranty with no issue.
