more details needed:

-you described a runaway eng for the first problem, but what EXACTLY happened to the second eng? (if it was also a runaway, you say they checked the turbo, but was the intercooler checked? if a turbo leaks oil, it can end up pooling in the intercooler, which can lead to repeat eng runaways.)

-common sense would dictate that determining the cause of fuel contamination in the eng oil would be the FIRST thing to do, long before replacing the eng. this is especially true if you planned to have a second eng installed, with ANY parts transferred from old to new eng. (im thinking stuck open injector, as one possibility)
speaking as a technician, this should have been done when veh was first towed to the shop - WAS this done?

best of luck.
