I was dreading buying new valves for this engine and contemplated what to buy? When I remembered I had complete 05 STI valvetrain, I quickly dug them up for some prep work. Downtime is the worst for a dreamer. While I waited on the valve guides, given the spark plug crack, this would be the prime opportunity to test what I've read here and there about "thermal" coatings. Without spoiling my next update Mr.D, this is what I was up too. The heads will eventually need to be replaced, that's a given, but who tears apart a perfectly working engine for no reason? Not I, at least not these days, where time is of the essence. Leaving the cracked heads in play would give me that reason, on the next tear down I can inspect all the shenanigans I've arranged. So the timer is set; 2yrs or less.

Chip resistant so far. I dropped two of them from 4ft high onto a wood floor. :facepalm:

bronze guides not needed for this street car, these stockers will do.

the valve springs from my 05 STI (couldn't dig up any info. about the green color spring; anyone else know?)

05 STI bumpsticks w/ AVCS plugged, "anti friction" coating. Before I install these does the plug need to run the entire length of the AVCS hole?

cylinder heads receive the same "theorized" treatment

typical fan boy wrinkle prep; 18hr days for vanities....what am I thinking
