On edit, I still don't know what 'BBQ' stands for here . . .

By definition of distortion. Yes thats exactly what it means, can this be the issue maybe but other tell signs usually follow. Oil usage is one, and normally seen at some point. I told the tech thats help me that I believe the wear in my cylinder looks more like stain, from the engine sitting awhile after it was removed. He says then it would show on other cylinders as well, which isn't the case of course. I performed a cylinder leak down test on the particular bore and it yield less than 5% cylinder leakage. Meaning its holding more that 95% of its pressure. Thats excellent. So how can it be a scorned cylinder?
