Improper repair results in $20,000 bill for engine

Interstate Motorsport - Improper repair results in $20,000 bill for engine
Purchased a 2003 Porsche 911 in March 2017. Knowing the originally designed intermediate shaft bearing was destined to fail, which Porsche, in a class action lawsuit payed out over $20 million in restitution to owners, the owner of Interstate Motorsports agreed, in writing on my contract to replace the bearing as a condition of the sale. After the documented failure of the bearing, the only proper replacement is available by only two manufacturers, L&N or EPS, a totally redesigned bearing costing upwards of $600. When the ‘replacement’ bearing failed after only 8000 miles, I requested the invoice for the replaced bearing. The receipt provided to me from Interstate was for a bearing designed for industrial applications costing $13.23. No, that is not a misprint, thirteen dollars and twenty-three cents. The resulting failure of the bearing led to the total loss of the engine, costing over $20,000 in loss.
