6.4 L oil pressure relief valve failure

Had my 2008 f550 engine rebuilt including HPOP heads cam etc. Spent $10,000 a month ago. The other day engine runs rough chokes coughs and makes terrible noise and stalls. Tow it back and they tell me needs turbos so I say ok and they do them then call and say engine seized cause OPRV stuck open need new engine. I feel that after $10K they should have check the valve and this is their fault. Any idea's?

No idea, but welcome and ouch thats a pretty painful hit. Whoever did the work obviously doesn't think it's their fault and have nothing for you.

So what now, another engine or another truck?
