So after having some valve train issues we got Justin's car over to the shop and pulled her apart after previously breaking a Cam Follower "Rocker arm" for the pushrod guys, and this is what we found.





So we sent the heads out for a once over and after finding 9 bent valves in total they were cleaned up, new stainless valves added, bronze guides, new seals, and a complete refresh.





She's going back together now just got the powdercoated valve covers & timing cover back today... With the addition of a complete new valvetrain, some badass cams, and a Billet Gear HV Oil pump she'll be ready to tear up the streets again very soon!!!



Finished product will be posted up soon!!!

Almost there... we found a couple last minute things that snagged us up from hearing her fire today... The turbo oil line was stripped so we'll be replacing that and the lower radiator hose was clocked incorrectly and rubbing against the power steering pulley just a hair away from rupturing and of course... neither of these things are over the counter easy to get parts... LOL!

Finished the car up last week... @ 14psi she made 550/550 on a conservative tune. We're gonna let him ride around for a couple weeks and get her back on the dyno for more boost and kill time!!!
