Frank, thanks for the advice.

Where do you get your slotted bearings? I am thinking that for the engine that is going back in the Jetta, I'll probably go ahead and do this. On the other hand I try my best not to screw with things that aren't broken. Before the motor was pulled I heard it run fine. So my plan is to scope the bore, check clearances, do a new timing belt, and run it. Is it a risk? Yep, but in the end I'm only out my own time with minimal parts. If I had to take it to a garage I would probably feel different. Also from what I've read the ALH engine isn't prone to HG issues. Now if it was a Toy 3.0l this wouldn't even be a discussion.
