Yep so, I now made over 500 mls with my MkII. After I accelerated the initially carefully gentle engine-friendly driving style and now gone often over the 75 mph, some oiling started at the end of the head. (Can also be due to the mighty Morgo pump?). Must pull the head at end of the driving season, making the usual decarbonizing and install the Otto Head Gasket Set ( $$$$$ ).
Hope that helps then against the oily boots.
