Dealer said 2 burnt pistons and 2 bad injectors, full of crap?

So i pulled a 6.0 out of a truck and changed it out due to the dealership telling me it had 2 injectors go bad and burning two pistons. Anyhow after the fact i couldnt remember which two cylinders they said were bad so i bolted a starter to it and ran a compression test on all cylinders and they were as follows

1 390 2 390
3 380 4 390
5 395 6 395
7 385 8 400

Now correct me if i am wrong but if i had burnt pistons i would have a serious lack of compression in those cylinders wouldnt i?

I put it in another truck and replaced all the injectors and its running like a champ. Dealership was trying to screw me into buying a new engine at worst or they were idiots at best.

it can happen but not too common in a 6.0. you need one hell of an injector failure to melt a piston.
