not blaming you but,if there is going to be a problem,its going to be right away most of the time.I hope the builder helps you out.I hope when you get it back in its home,you drive the car hard in the first few days.To make it easier on the builder and show good faith,you should offer to pay for an upgrade to a roller cam while it is apart.If its mild,use a hydraulic roller.Let him make a couple bucks on the cam and he will likely be ok with helping you out.
If its not to far,drive the engine down there and be there when they take it apart?Let him explain what happened while you are looking at it. a picture is worth a 1,000 words. example; if the oil pick up is sitting in the bottom of the pan,,,not a thing you did would cause that.It takes 15 minutes to take an engine apart,,,
