I went on ahead and removed the oil pan to inspect the bottom end, and I must say shear brilliance. The componets are nice and of high quality for a factory engine I must say. Checked all the rods and as I've stated before all where nice and wiggle free, you do have some fwd and aft movement but that is very normal. This thing is highly clean, heck you can still see he paint ref marks used during assy. You can also see the cylinder cross hatch marks for ring breaking.
