I think that depends on how the engines been treated over that 80,000k. You always run some risk on an engine that isn't fresh, but 80K isn't alot, and if it's been looked after I'd be surprised if you had any problems. I had a red 202 in a Torry some years back and I put in a stage 5 (I think, had the head bolt sections taken out of the ports), it had about 160K on it and I didn't have any dramas, (and I flogged the crap out of it). Maybe I was just lucky? No definite guarantees, but if it was mine I'd go for it.
Cheers
Bruno
