There's oil in most of the ports, and the valves have oily crud on them. Not sure which, but "most of" best describes the situation. The heads are brand new aluminum and the seals are brand new, gray/white in color with full metal jacket to hold the boss. I installed them, and I'm told that they are "the good ones for street/strip use". Not Teflon, but Viton?
