Get you one of those cheap bore cams on Amazon that attach to your smartphone. Inspect things through the exhaust and intakeYep. The only ones that are open are the ones that the cam lobes are on - and they close when i rotate the engine they all seem to work ok. Next step i suppose is to pull the heads. There's nothing else in the way of that now on the passengers side - intake, IP, coolant crossover, exhaust, valve covers etc. And only the ps pump and exhaust manifold on the driver's side.
One thing that may or may not be important to know is that the passengers side exhaust manifold has been off most of this time and the air intake from the turbo has been uncovered. I didn't stuff rags into the exhaust ports or the upper intake, but I have kept the hood closed - it hasn't been rained on or anything like that.
