Well actually I was thinking. When you DIY them they are pretty much brand new afterwords... Its really what you are comfortable doing I guess

well good it's a lot cheaper that way
and i think the blowby is just a worn out o-ring
and that gets fixed with the diy kit

For DIY rosewoods are very good and cheap. I think you canget a set of stage 1's for like 500 bucks.

If you buy some look into casserlys
