Also I read your blog and have a question about the valves. I know DOM blueprints everything so I dont question the workmanship, but did you learn anything about why the valves warped? Was there insufficient lash (not that it was done wrong but that more lash would have been better)?

I'm sort of leaning toward your old head piston package for my car and just wanted tips.

he was on a tighter budget before and used POS BC Valves and springs. By POS, I mean COMPLETE PIECE OF ****. Those parts are so substandard that it blows my mind that anyone even uses them. I didn't know how bad they were when we first started using them, but after more experience with them... yuck. Plus, regular stainless exhaust vales is a bad idea anyway on a car making this much power. I'll only run Ferrea Stainless exhaust valves and even then I won't run them on anything more than 30R.
