Yeah man now your talking -- I've got some lifter issues w/ my ABH, so
I'm planning to P&P the heads, rebuild w/ new everythings, including
guides/seals/etc and HD springs & bigger valves are part of the plan as

I'm also intrigued by the catcam options out there as well -- the little
voice in my head is telling me $950 seems just a bit too good to be
true, and that the difference over stock wouldn't be as much as $1800 -
$2000 sticks would be.  Not that I have $2k burning a hole in my wallet,
but I wouldn't want to spend half that to get half the power bump...

Anyway, I'm ready -- just so jammed up with work and home stuff that I
haven't been able to contribute to the research as I'd like...
