I expect your repaired engine will be perfect, just like new. By not needing a new engine block he means the cylinder walls will be good. That's been my experience on several Japanese engines I've had apart. No measurable wear on the cylinders.
Years ago that was never the case. They always had a ridge meaning wear that required reboring, honing and oversized pistons.
Recently my '99 F-250 had a broken piston. I simply replaced it and did nothing to the cylinder since it showed no wear - in 200,000 miles!
