After spending 2 1/2 years in my green 2000 5-speed I removed this engine over the winter and installed the car's original engine that has had necessary maintenance done to it.
Today I started to disassemble this "spare" engine to change the cam tensioner pads and a few other things. It was running fine, although it seemed a bit down on power.
With the bank 2 valve cover off the cams look good and the bearing journals are like new.
I'll update this thread as I move along and will post a few pictures of what I find.

There is some scoring on the camshaft bearings that are beside the chain on bank 2 . All other bearings are perfect. I a have started another thread on that subject, with photos.

The chain tensioner pads are worn, but I have seen worse.

One of my pads was worse than those, yours are more evenly worn than mine were. I saw your other thread, not sure if that will be an issue or not, I don't think mine had any noticeable scoring. I did have some large scoring on the oil pump cavity, I'm leaving it for now, but at least it's replaceable if I need to.

I would recommend dropping the oil pan if you haven't already, there could be surprises in there. Ask me how I know!
