 I ended up in contact with a guy in Seattle that had a similar situation.
Took it in for a "tune up" before winter.  It got towed back twice.  They
broke the head, pulling the injectors, claimed they couldn't find a 
replacement head then replaced the engine.  It had no power, used 
oil I believe, the oil light came on all the time so he finally just gave 
up and sold the car after offering to give it to me for my time.
  If they can bend a valve setting the timing (turn it over by hand) 
then they aren't really qualified to pull a head on one of these or 
they'll likely end up cracking the block. 
  Oh yeah, I think those guys managed to do that too!
