    Great update :)

    I do miss my old 940, was non-turbo but I did want to convert it, then the 850 came along so the 940 went. Shame as I wanted to know what more power felt like in a 940.

    Oh dear not good then.

    The good news is you'll have a reconditioned head with new stem seals. You could probably do the pcv system whilst the head is off too.
