I agree with most of what you wrote - except that if you are going to pay someone else $8k to reseal your top cylinders, this isn't a car for you. I DIYed all 11 for $600 and two weekends of...

because when I tried it the first time - it ran correctly once and then caused the 'no boot device' error and I couldn't get the laptop to boot with either drive. So I'm scared. There. I said it.
