did it run ok before the removal?
you may have dislodged some carbon and it is now blocking the E valve. if that one was lose, i would consider this even more.

those numbers are a bit high. if you did not have the bad cylinder and the engine was still in the car, i would say drive it. since it is out and if you have to do one cylinder, i would re-ring all 6, do the heads a rockers and put SC cams in it.
the bad thing is, you could pull the pistons and they be out of spec, then your bill just doubled.
if they are a OK, you have a great motor for another 120-150k.
