Yes there was an issue. It developed a solid miss, and losing coolant.
So I figured a head gasket. And with that many miles there's no way I'd do the heads, and not the rest. If it wasn't such a nice car, I'd not even fool with it. Thought about getting a new engine from GM, but when I got the heads off, I decided to save the money for something else.

I'm totally amazed at this engine. and how it's held up.
