Pal, you're a lot braver than me, I wouldn't have touched that car with an 11 foot pole. But I am far from mechanically inclined.
That being said congrats on the new purchase, get her running again.
There was another G8 owner who when doing his chains had the same sludging in the cam shaft bays problem, with a good cleaning apparently the engine now runs problem free. Last owner probably never changed the oil and used cheap oil. I only go with synthetic oils in my V6.
I think the tread was named: Ashamed and Disgusted, theres a picture of the mess in the bays.
