It was not uncommon for the 2011-early 12, and sometimes later models, to crack a piston at the ringlands.

Ask for them to do a compression test and provide you with the results before you authorize them taking your engine apart. And ask how many the tech working on the car has actually done. Lots have had a piston or two lopped in that broke, and are still driving their cars today. A small handful had more unpleasant experiences.

Yup, I'd reckon.

I ran the Torque app while I was driving today - the boost never got above 4 psi. I know boost pressure is weather dependent and all, but it was hitting 12 psi in the summer. What should the boost pressure be on a cold, dry day?

I'll take it back in and have them check the hoses.
Definitely more than 4! Especially with an engine this tiny that relies on boost to do anything.

Don't try to drag race any Priuses.
