slightly off topic (but back to the original topic).

All valve guides need replacing, however my pistons and cylinders are in excellent condition (rings should be replaced though).

Head studs are non-magnetic, so I assumed Dilivar but are all in good shape. I decided to go with steel studs, but am still going back and forth on that one. I may end up biting the bullet and getting ARP.

You will all be impressed that the only 'while you are in there' that I am doing is a set of SC cams to complement the other common turbo mods on the car.Turns out to be less than 10% of the total rebuild cost... I'm proud of myself.

My main goals was to eliminate the smoking when hard on the gas, as well as the various oil leaks which were getting really bad. The turbo was shot also BTW.
