valve job

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1984; Body Type: Targa; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3; Total Mileage: unknown ;

I am considering replacing my '82 coupe with an 82 or mid-80's Targa. I have "heard" that these years will all require a valve job somewhere in the 50K miles range. Is this true? Is there a means of determining if an individual car requires a valve job other than a compression or leakdown test?Since I may look for a car prior to 84, I have submited this question to the pre 83 tech comittee member.Thanks,Steve
