For whatever the reason, the valve guides I bought from EBS were crap. They wore down in 5000 miles and ate my valve stems. Car ran great but had a ticking noise that bugged me (seemed I was the only one who could hear it). So, after about a month of dickin' around diagnosing it, I found a couple of loose valves (side to side play in their guides). Took it apart and found the problem. Its now back together with stainless steel intake and inconel exhaust valves. The guides are manganese bronze. Let's see if I can get more than 5000 miles between engine drops....
