Cleaned head
This motor had perfect compression and ran great, so I didn't touch the valves

Exhaust studs
eEuroparts studs are indeed smaller. I went with all small studs, but I had to reuse one in a whole were the thread was stripped near the top.

the double-nut method works great for removal and installation

Clean exhaust manifold
I never removed the turbo from the manifold. Note: attached the oil lines to the turbo before tightening the exhaust manifold nuts when reinstalling. Doing it the other way is very hard.

Don't forget the oil cooler lines to the turbo BEFORE tightening the exhaust manifold bolts
