  Anybody that has one should do themselves a big favor and be sure 
to annually change the anti freeze.  The head gaskets have a tendency 
to leak and pitting to the surfaces is a large part of it.  Preventative 
maintenance is a really good idea!  :)  Raceware claims 
their head studs prevent the head gasket leak problems on a 
wasserboxer.  I suppose if they don't let minor leakage get in there 
in the first place it might...
