Just use a 12 packet of Bic shaver's.....takes ages........ :wink:

Seriously, take it to a machine shop, tell them what your doing, and they should be able to sort it out.

Well considering they dont have billets, you'll be waiting a while for a cam with that much lift from them.

Get 30 thou off then use an AU MLS headgasket, its about half the thickness of original, bout 20thou I think vs 40thou.

I'd use the AU motor... build it up then drop it straight into the car. AU motors are smoother to rev, and no doubt will have far less kms.

depending on how bad it warps next time you may have to take more. Not to mention the extra compression might make it ping its little a*** off, and on an ef its not justas easy as tuning the dizzy cap to take out a little bit of timming
