– Send head to machine shop for resurfacing and checked for compression (do this ASAP because I waited nearly 3 months for it to be completed)
IF valves are getting cut, do a 3 ANGLE Valve Job! The valves come 3 angle from the factory so it doesn’t make sense to do a 2 angle valve job. You’ll have to find a Performance Machine Shop that can do a 3 angle job.
