My job was done by a shop that does lots of race support so it was a quick fix with just a partial disasembly of the motor as the other cylinders were fine at that time. I think the complete repair was around $1800. They thought it was a isolated incedent due to overheating in the cylinder that is known for that problem. still runs great. Well at 70 K you are much closer to a complete redo depending on the abuse from last 70K miles, I was @ 54K and pretty much pampered miles with good maintinance from new.
