    Looks nice. Should be easier to keep clean too.

    Do you use an EGR valve or do you have it blocked-off??

    Looks great. Did you powdercoat it yourself or send it out?

    Looks great! Just make double sure you get all of the blasting media out of the intake! Also that tin heat shield can hold alot of that crud and if it gets into the oil system ouch!

    oh ya! thats for sure... when i first started rebuilding motorcycle heads, i made that mistake and it didnt work for long. the dissassemble and inspection of the head in question was evident that there was glass left behind. it will never happen again. you live and learn. so, how do you know of such disaster? the mistake was terrible. owning up to the customer was even worse. but paying for it really hurt. all in all, that guy is now my best customer. i finish parts for them weekly.
