thanks, john. i'm bringing the head in to be
re-decked tomorrow. a buddy of mine should be
hooking me up with a de-glazer for honing the
2 more questions for you all:
1. i will be getting the ARP studs eventually,
but right now i'm stuck with the stock bolts.
i'm pretty sure that the answer is yes, but i'll
ask anyways: once the motor is together, can i
pull one stock headbolt at a time, and replace
each one with an ARP stud and nut?
2. is there a quick and easy way of installing
the exhaust manifold on the car??? i had to
leave the turbo, the exhaust manifold, the
wastegate, and the downpipe on the head just to
get it out. i'm sure i've done some damage to
myself, and i really fear putting it all back in
as one unit. the whole reason i had to pull it
all out is because the head surface was marred
during installation. i DO NOT want to have to do
this again anytime soon.
