Default Looks like another Saleen may be headed to the scrapyard

I have a 2005 S121 N2O and it looks like one of the spark plugs in the car decided to detonate in the cylinder, I now have a dead cylinder but does not look like there is a hole in the piston. I did find out that my extended powertrain warranty I purchased at time of purchase of the vehicle is still in affect. The only problem is now there is a good chance that the vehicle will never reach it's former glory again the dealership is waiting on approval from the warranty company and the warranty company won't give me any information on possible outcomes. The dealer did state that the warranty company could have them pull the engine apart to the fault but for them to do that I need to approve it as well, but if they do that and find out it isn't a covered powertrain part I'm then responsible to pay the shop for their time and labor and I can't even afford to rip the engine apart myself let alone pay a dealership to do it. I really do love this car but the relationship I've had with it since I've owned it is definitely less then satisfactory. The other main thing on top of all of this I owe almost $14,000 on the vehicle and the KBB value on it is barely $7,000 so there is no way for me to sell it or anything. Idk maybe this is what I get for buying a car as rare as this one.
