valve guide seals are in a top end gasket set. Hope you didn't buy extras, know that would drive the Scotsman in you nuts.

Consensus is that it's fine. And no, didn't buy extras. FWIW, Lucky 8 seems to have the best price on the full gasket set.

Intake manifold dipped, blasted and reassembled; piston faces cleaned, new water pump installed and new thermostat installed. Intake cover should be back next week, next step is the head gaskets!

Nice, want more top end power, shorten the intake horns by 50 mm or half the factory size...low end grunt leave as they are....keep a light foot on the skinny pedal or that zf 22 will shed the clutches.
I'm building a monster 22 for mine... That is a 22 with 24 internals thus keeping it non electronic..it aint easy...

Thanks, Carlos. I may well be calling you soon to get your advice on swapping all of this over.
