I have 2x Range 4 200HP on my boat and I rebuilt the port unit completely last year, including having the head professionally machined and redone, and a new turbo for less than 3.5k(us)
so no it not an issue , and there isn't that many engine that size , that you can just replaced the piston sleeve, parts (except the manicooler) are easy and priced like the rest, manual are free only and there is lots of video
