    What does the top of the piston look like? Typically when EGT's are too high it burns the top of the piston, you may have a leaky injector or a blown out ring.

    Are there any burn marks from where the injector sprays, kinda like a flower with 6 pedals in the middle?

    See the melting? Dead give away... I know you said on the other forum that it was a CAI and strait pipe, but unless it was pure negligence on upkeep they ran tuning.

    The scratch marks on the crown are from it riding around in the bed of the truck.

    When you run a tuner you are able to go back stock on most tuners so they could have set it back, but if they didn't and they didn't provide the tuner to you then you'll need a re-flash from the dealer.
