All au had bigger valves... Or are they bigger than au? If so what size?

Gasket matched ports or is it wild?

Conical valve springs mean nothing unless they're heavy duty... All au style heads have Conical springs...

As troy said you probably got ripped without specs on the head and you can't run it with what you show in the photo... You need the part which fits in the front (phaser housing) and the rocker cover otherwise you're going to have a huge hole...

My first vct head conversion (everything from the head gasket up cost me 300... The motor I converted into mine 2 weeks ago (see my build) cost me 1k but was a complete long motor with ancillaries, full set of wiring looms, plus a heap of other parts...

Cheers,
Tim

In saying that... The head is still good... You just need to get onto old mate and get the rest of the vct parts... I got my phaser back together because the head I brought, some knob took the 4 bolts out like yours is there and it was in pieces... Took some doing but...

You don't want it for turbo but... Just need to get big hole filling parts from a vct and use STD au other parts...

Cheers,
Tim
