Has a little bit of varnish happening...that was from the early years I owned the car and was trying to do 5-7k miles on Schaeffers 7000 blend, but I was only running 4 miles a day during the week, building up water and fuel so the oil would come out shot.

This motor is going into the 2002 CVPI in my sig...that motor has timing chain issues then blew a spark plug out while I was working on a solution.

I have the valve covers off as the left cover is broken due to this engine slamming into the ABS module when I wrecked the car. A combination of the frame bending and bringing the module closer and the motor laying over from the force of the impact. So Im resealing both valve covers as I have the gasket anyways, might as well.
