Been working on the cylinder head to prep it for final install and been setting valve lash. I had all the stock shims organized on a piece of paper to make it easy to measure for correct thickness. Also drilled and tapped the oil feed to the head for vvl and put a 1/8″npt plug in it because I’ll be running oil to the solenoids from the oil distribution block. Had to also drill and tap for 1/8″npt plug on the block for the stock vtc oil fees since I won’t be using vtc anymore 🙂 a lot of small things before I can torque down the head but it’s getting there and I’m getting excited to finally put the motor in the car so I can mock up the front tube chassis.
