Video showing oil flowing into the head without cam cover, during cranking. It's getting oil, but there is a noticeable difference between intake and exhaust side. 

 

Can anyone confirm if that's normal, or should both sides be equal?

The wear should be the same on both both head and caps...
Has your head been made up from parts from more than one head?

One would expect right? But not as far as I’m aware. The head was from my previous engine which I ran for over a year Turbocharged without any issues.
