you don't have to take the head off to swap the bolts, just do them one at a time, pretty common practice for guys who put studs in. so i'd say leave the head on, just open the top up and take a look at the cam.
i'd honestly say if it made it to 211k with the factory cam i'd guess its still good.
True I could do that. Yeah I hope the cam is fine as it would save some money, but I don't have this cars history like I did with my sedan so you never know. I know only the correct oil was used in my car it's whole life. I only get my girls the good s.hit hahaha

how does it work with the cams in these, they just blow fast or can you look at one and check to see if its good? i hear about bad cams constantly in the PD motors but not much about inspecting them

There's a whole procedure outlined here:

I'm using that site for most of these procedures in combination with the Bentley DVD, they have pictures and steps for almost everything.
