I may have missed something but I think the thing is this, Most people don't consider a rebuild unless there's a problem causing you to do so or your looking for more power. In my case I had some broken head studs and a stuck cluch that started the whole thing, then you get to the well while I'm in here stuff. And like all have said the lower end of these engines are very durable, you would need a very good reason to go past the rod bearings in a rebuild, low oil pressures being one. It would be best to start with a leakdown test and see where your at, Does the car smoke, loss of power, extreme valve noise, just watch out because it can become a slippery slope. At the end of the day it's your car and you must do what makes you happy no matter what someone on the internet says..
