It will probably be fine. Just do a few back to back oil changes.
When are you getting it tuned?

Yeah I plan on being pretty religious with oil changes on this, I have a feeling one of the previous owners didn't and that is why the lifter did what it did.

I don't have a date set on a tune, I still have to call around to a couple shops.

Alright update time. I picked up a set of SLP long tubes, catted midpipe, and SLP catback for $750 from craigslist. I broke an exhaust bolt when I had reinstalled my manifolds but I figured I would wait to remove it until I had a decent exhaust system to install. Now that I have some lomgtubes I went to fix it and of course that went from bad to worse. There was about 1/4" of the broken bolt sticking out of the head, so I figured I could get it out without pulling the head back off. But of course my twist sockets didn't have enough bolt to grab on to, my knipex pliers slip off when force is out on it, and vicegrips were no better. My last ditch effort was to drill it out and try using an extractor. Now I have a broken extractor and a very stuck bolt. I pulled the head back off and plan on trying the trick of welding a washer and nut onto the bolt this coming weekend. Hopefully it work, because I really don't want to have to buy a new head.Click image for larger version

Send the heads to Texas speed for a stage 2.5 port and they will take care of the bolt.

I did it with these ones

Can't afford to send them out at the moment. If I can get it fixed myself then I can use that money for a blower instead

If all else fails, take the head to an automotive machine shop, and have them remove the broken exhaust bolt.
I don't think that they will charge too much to do it.

That's my next step if I can't get it out.

Some guys use reverse drills when trying to extract broken bolts. That way, there is a chance that the bolt will back itself out while drilling it, due to the vibration and the drill bit spinning in a counter-clockwise direction.

Yeah I was using a reverse drill bit until I got a hole big enough for my extractor. So far reverse drill bits have not worked for anything I have used them for.

Well don't give up on them! Someday they will work!

This is just one of the pitfalls of iron bolts in an aluminum cylinder head...

You might also try heating up the cylinder head around the broken bolt. Maybe that will expand the bolt hole enough to help loosen the bolt.

Yeah I plan on welding a nut on and then heating up around the bolt before attempting to remove it.
