I don't see any problem if they replace the entire motor. The motor is shipped complete to them. They simply unbolt the old one and drop in the new one (ok, not that simple). Even the electronic connectors are designed to be unplugged with ease. Remember that the dealer will get paid by GM for all labor costs so a lot of new designs have simplicity and speed in mind so GM doesn't have to pay out of their asses in warranty.

If the dealer rebuilds the motor then you have every right to complain. You need all new bearings and the block needs to be milled for larger bearings since the old ones spun and made groves at where they're placed. That's not original anymore. They're doing something that's normally done on motors that have over 80K miles on them.
