Do you have a banging noise when on boost? Gas leaking from the lifting head or just the ehad chattering on to the barrel.
Mine went on for about 6 months before i had the top end rebuild.

Hopefully you only have a slight oil weep,

Nope no banging noise , only prob is when im peaking the acceleration dies at 'the top end of the rev range, it makes me sad she runs out of steam, im thinking vscuum leak ive yet to find, but ill find it one day as every nut is coming off sooner or later
