Spoke to my Service Manager today. I'm taking it in Thursday to show them the videos of the tick and let them look at it. I asked if I could take the car back home with me while I await approval of the PUMA case and for the cylinder head to arrive, he said that was ok.
Honestly, I'm extremely nervous about this. My tick is extremely rare, but I really wanted to get this taken care of before I have to pay $50 a visit with CPO. Hope this doesn't open a can of worms.
