If it stays in good shape I'd like to leave it alone and keep it as a spare, but I will take pictures and bore measurements at a minimum when we put a built shortblock in. If it's at all questionable when we leakdown test it before pulling it, we'll tear it down and detail everything.
Would you attribute part of its current streak to the vipecs abilities and the tune?
