Not yet, I plan to contact the mechanic sometime next week. He did the work so I figured he would be the best one to deal with it. I'll post with any updates.

OK, the latest update as of 11/29. I talked to the mechanic that originally put in the engine and he said he has talked to the supplier/builder. First issue is we are about a year past the one year warranty. Second, they are questioning the turbo, I guess they might suspect a pressure issue. Third, when the mechanic scoped the engine and found the defect in the cylinder wall he also noticed the engine was built with flat top pistons and not the dished pistons used in the RTE. So at this point I'm waiting for everyone to discuss what course of action is going to happen. Should the one year warranty prevail over the incorrect parts being used? I'll post when I know more.

Right now it all comes down to what the supplier is willing to do. I'm fearful they will claim it is not under any warranty and I'll be shit out of luck. My son and I have done business with them in the past by buying parts and they even rebuilt a transmission for us too. Hopefully they can do something as this is an issue that is way out of anything imaginable, at least to me and others including mechanics. Who can afford to replace an engine every 5,000 miles? Right now it is burning a quart of oil every tank of gas and fouling plugs every 100 miles but it doesn't noticeably smoke except after a long deceleration or if you jump on it at cruising speed. I was perplexed that the problem seamed to be it was only fouling #1 plug and I had a noticeable amount of blow by coming from the front valve cover breather hose into the intake hose right after the AFM. I contacted a tech at the supplier a few months ago about this problem and he said it was either the rings or a valve issue and never mentioned this was a possibility. I have just found out that when the engine was first shipped it was seized and had to be sent back so I'm wondering if it was returned and reshipped with it being predisposed to its current condition whether apparent or not. I have always had an issue with high oil consumption but I just attributed that to a long break in until I had a total #1 plug failure due to oil fouling (the electrode was caked solid). I really can't afford to repair this again and I don't have a place to part it so I might have to scrap the truck or sell it for virtually nothing.

This is the scoped image of cylinder #1 where I have been having all my problems. The engine was bought new as a longblock and has less then 5,000 miles. It even has one of those heat tabs that shows if it has overheated. I'm hoping 209yota1 will do something to remedy this situation as this clearly is a material failure. Hopefully we find out soon. I'll post more as it develops.

Bad news. The mechanic found the issue. A failure in the #1 cylinder wall. I will get a more definite detailed account on Friday when I go see him. I'm just amazed how well this thing ran with this type of damage. Other than the oil plug foul issue it ran good compression test numbers. This guy got the engine from a toyota engine parts supplier/builder and it has less then 5,000 on it so he might be able to get some kind of warranty type assistance from them. We'll see. Hopefully. I'll post more as it develops.

My problem is that I am not sure my problem really is the injectors, so I'm hesitant about forking out hundreds to replace them (since I can't have a lot of downtime) when the problem maybe something else. I am no pro at this detailed diagnostic troubleshooting stuff but I usually do pretty good. I'm just trying to avoid an expensive parts chase.
That being said today I found a vacuum leak on the wastegate hose (Garret GT25R), so to get to it I had to remove the AFM to turbo inlet hose and the pipe from the turbo to the throttle body. Once I got them off I found they were dripping with oil. I have been burning a lot of oil lately, about 1 quart every 500 - 800 miles. The oil appears to be coming from the front valve cover breather hose where it hooks up to the intake hose just after the AFM. So I fixed my vacuum leak and cleaned out the oil in the intake hose and pipes and put it all back together. I fired it up and it did run fine. My vacuum at idle increased from a steady 19 to just over 20. So i took it for a test drive. It ran great yet when I went down a steep hill in second gear with no throttle for 1/8 mile and stopped, as soon as I hit the gas to pull away I got a big puff out the tailpipe. It lasted a second or two and cleared up. Lately I have noticed if I jump on it hard or let it idle for a few minutes I this happens.
Yesterday I put in a fresh set of Denso plugs and after 10 miles pulled #1 (my problem cylinder) and it was as black as if I had spray painted it.
Since this is my son's engine he wants me to take it to his Toyota mechanic and have it tested. BTW my PVC and grommet on the other hose is new as are all the vacuum hoses.
I've read where guys install an oil catch can but why is this engine doing this when none of my other 22 rte's ever did.
At this point I think it might be good to have someone who knows this stuff (this guy is a factory trained Toyota guy) and pinpoint what the problem really is instead of me just throwing darts at it.
I'll won't abandon this post until I relay whats been found and what it takes to correct this problem.
