This might just be me. But I would be grateful that they didn't screw up my engine because they didn't know what they were doing but tried anyways. One would think an engine is an engine but they may have also been concerned at a business stand point of not wanting to warranty an engine they know nothing about.
That being said they did take way too long to tell you they weren't going to be able to work on it.
