Based on the exhaust valve issues with the head, that is all I would do, your only out the cost of the head gasket, head inspection/machining, and your time, if there was more issues than just the head.

Hi S....

I appreciate your feedback!   :beerchug:

Yeah... I'm very curious now if the head and bad valves, and I suspect *maybe* a bad head gasket, were causing the issue with the excessive oil consumption.  My head shop guy said he thinks its possible the exhaust valves not sealing would cause excessive pressure to blow oil back into the top of the head and into the throttle body.

Once I get the new head installed, I will know something in about 600 miles!  :gap:
