keep your lips pressed tightly around the shaft, use lots of pressure, carress with your tongue, swallow the load.....and keep off with the teeth or ill kick you through the wall

you wont really need to compensate its .04 off the head where it NEEDS to be retarded 1deg. but you can go ahead and do it anyway with .03

man...thats exactly what i thought when i read the title too. and remember to be nice to his other two friends....


anyway on a serious note, sounds like you are on the right track, thats really close to what i did to my z6, though i only shaved .010

thats not true it depends on the chemical you use in the tank
I was reading something about this last night, you are supposed to use a different kind of chemical than the kind you use on iron. I believe the aluminum bath has a different acid or something in it. Google would clarify it better.

Ive never seen a hot tank for aluminum. Seen lots of chem bath part washers used on them but not a heated tank. Could just be because my town is like 10 years behind most places. Which is ok because we have no emission testing.

@OP- Unless you happen to have a good friend who works in a machine shop, why would you spend that kind of money building a y7 head when you could just grab a y8 and a p2e off ebay for the same or even less as that kind of head work? Stock valves are already cut 3 angles?

because a well built y7 head will own a y8 head and why a P2E ecu, its a P2P for VTEC and yes the stock valves are cut 3 angles but a performance valve job changes those angles which allows more airflow over the valve

d16y7's FTW :). technically the seat is what gets a good 3 angle cut and the valve a single cut or a double cut depending on how many angles you want
