I would want to know the detailed assembly procedure before i blamed the bolt, not that there can't be material issues with bolts but it's not very common.

What was the free length of the bolt out of the box. what was the bolt stretched to during assembly, and re-sizing,did the bolt retain it's orginal length with-in .001 after the first stretch.

If the engine was assembled only using a torque wrench and not a stretch gage it's all over, the bolt was not the issue...
