Hello All,

I'm in the middle of doing a TKX Swap so I pulled the engine out and upon removing the headers noticed some oil residue in the exhaust ports.
I have included pictures so you can see. I think I may have some leaky valve guides or maybe oil was leaking in thru from the valve covers.
It did smoke during startup then go away after a 5 or 10 min drive. I'm thinking now is the time to remove the heads and have them freshened up.
