It's a '00 and is known for external HG weeps, mine started weeping (scent of coolant on the header) at about 185K miles, but no coolant loss or internal mixing, no overheating, and no phosphorous/sodium in the oil analysis. BUT if I want to keep the car for a long time, I was planning on HG around 200K anyway, and this may be a way to (partially) fund it before I have to via catastrophic failure.

I always thought I might do a junkyard Turbo setup and go with lower CR pistons if I ever had to take the motor apart...shrug....
