That's double the cams, valves, rockers, adjusters, springs. Shew a 5k or less project just turned into a 10k job. If I didn't already order the new pi 2v manifold I would be changing to a tt 4v. Any ideas ?
Sorry myfx4 long day at the machine shop. Love the parts and I'm jealous at the moment lol

Dont even bother with the 2v stuff seel it all and pickup a core engine from Car-part.com. Rebuild that way leave the top end stock which will give it a killer bottem tq band and just run a small 70mm single.
