Ouch. Yeah, replace the pistons, and definitely check the block. Those scratches look a little deep.

But it doesn't show it in the crank. No scarring or anything to the bearing surfaces. And no color change. I was thinking over boost since it does have after market parts to the car

Someone got lucky I would go ahead and spend the money to build the engine and be done with it

I feel your pain. I'm waiting for a remanufactured engine to get here, so I can rebuild mine in my spare time.
