Many times from what I have heard about the piston tends to get chewed up.(Could score the cylinder also)

Let’s face it that kind of problem normally happens at high RPMs. If your relative competent in auto repairs procedures/ engine work, just changing out the heads CAN be a shade tree job. Cost depends on what’s broke and who is fixing it, could get nasty.
