I want to rebuild my sporty's top end. I've been around the mechanical universe, so I think I'm up to the task.

I would like to know if it's worth buying all the tools to rebuild everything (would like to run unleaded) or should I just take the parts to someone experienced?

Well me personally if it;s the first time on a task, I always screw it up. but if I have help, the second time on my own is a breeze. So, when I had my top end rebuilt, I took it in. Since I got to watch, I may do it myself next time. But hell, I have an Evo so there won't need to be a next time.

Hi there,
I personally wouldn`t want go thru the troubles of
putting the valve-seats (plus grinding `em) in again.
Love the pro-tools, just too expensive for a once every ~50000 mls job.
