A new engine is not require; depending on damage. I spoke with one mechanic who stated that usually valves on the left bank needs to be replaced and a possible head job on that side.<br> <br> To play if safe, if it needs to be changed, by all means, change it!!

It depends on how bad you jump time. If your pistons come up slamming into the valves and in turn score up the cylinder walls then who knows. It's probably cheaper to drop a new/used/rebuilt engine into it. 84-85 only if you go that route. That is when they put a dual chain set up in the 116.963 engine
