What heat shield do you have on those headers? It looks way tidy.

Hybrid engine has AU cam + Rocker assembly.

I used a EF Tickford head so the AU cam/rocker assembly opened everything at the wrong times.

Bummer!! Will you be getting another e-series cam reground for it in the future? I would imagine it would suck knowing you have the bottom end redone, ported head up top and still using a stock XR cam. A decent cam profile would definitely give it a nice added kick :twisted:
