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.

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.
