Robz - I forgot about the exhaust switch... And I thought it was only 1 side.

I'll tackle the issue later this year for sure, on a difficulty scale, I'd rank it a 5, doable with the right tools. But there are major risk if done wrong... Dropping parts into the engine, bending valves etc...

Another question, anyone overheat their engine? Usually that is what causes the stem seals to go bad... And from what I have heard, the water pump lasts a long time in this car, like 150k... Or so...
