They are not concerned that you have to machine the heads.....
They assume that YOU know what you are doing.
:wink:

Get a friend's T1 HD dual springs and try to install them on your head....
WITHOUT machining..........
:lol:

I'm using that exact same profiling tool for my tinware!!! The secret weapon is out...I didn't use it there tho' :wink:

One thing for you to consider at this early stage is to make allowances for any changes in the distance between the heads, as in head fly-cut/cylinder shimming as needed, later down the road, to get your CR where you want it. The tins will be very stiff, when finished.

The blasted steel looks great!!!

I hope to have most of my cooling in black paint this weekend, that will be a milestone :) It's almost smooth enough.

Looks great! I would suggest changing that bend after the exhausthousing! It is very restrictive if it's the original saab!

thanks Jonas, yes it's the original Saab
