Dropped valve seats!!

Ok i posted a thread about a month ago when my R/T died on the road.
It took a while but i found a trustworthy mech to take the engine apart. he called me wed to come check it out.
i dropped 3 valve seats (YES 3!!) and they fell bad enough to mess up the pistons and heads. im replacing the engine and should have it back by friday.
i have heard about 50 cases of dropped valve seats but NEVER more than 1 dropping at the same time!! Is it weird that 3 dropped all at once?

06 Midnight Blue Charger RT, 88k miles, No mods (yet)
Currently in the shop for engine problems

Glad to hear you found a good shop. I'm still looking for one. What part of he country are you in? It would be great if you could keep us appraised of your progress, where you got the motor, costs, time, etc.

Good luck!
