    some of my lifters in my N/A b234 are collapsed. i have some good lifters from a b205 out of a 02 9-3 and i’m tempted to put them in temporarily just to get rid of the terrible ticking noise. any thoughts or recommendations? i know using used lifters from another engine isn’t the best thing, but...
