I wanted to check bearings for any damage, which both stat gears have considerable amount of wear. Rotor bearings are fine. But yeah pretty much haha.

I can't tell from the photos very well but the rear iron looks to be in great shape! how are the other irons and housings?

Irons and housings are fine, one housing has a bit of edge wear, but it's near the exhaust, so it should be fine. Irons were in really great shape. All coolant seals were fine, the outer ones seem re-useable, but I'd rather just replace them all. Apex seals (3-piece) seemed fine, I didn't measure them out yet, but I've got some super low mileage 2 piece seals I'll throw in there anyways. Side seals and springs looked fine as well. Rotor bearings and gears are fine as well.

The only pieces that were worn were the stationary gears, there's a bit of copper showing. Also the E-shaft has a questionable area, but it might just be part of the initial factory weld, I'll have to compare with a few other E-shafts I have.

yeah sounds like its time to grab some s5 stat gears and a new o-ring kit and call it a day.

don't want to give it a streetport while its opened up?

I've got S5 stat gears too! Yeah, I think I do want a bit of a port job... I like stock port, but this car has big plans.
