Default My anti-build thread...

Fun things to do on a Saturday morning...tear down your setup. Woohoo....not! On a side note, the headgasket, cylinder walls, and pistons look great for a car that has seen 100k+ miles and lots of boost. No obvious bent valves, but probably bad seal/burnt valve on the exhaust side. I haven't taken a real close look yet.

I see a bit of oil on the valves, those seals your culprit? nothing is obviously pointing itself out....but then again, I know little about the inner-workings.
