alright so i decided to bring my block home from my girlfriends garage to begin notching the cylinders for the tuner toy h-beams...i've searched on here and haven't really found to much concerning the stuff used and how to do it. so if anyone can help me out (i.e. stuff used, pics?, and maybe a little guidence) that would be awesome


thanks guys...

also if anyone took theirs to a shop how much would i expect to pay for them to do it?:TU:

i used to think that was har but its easy
get a grinder or a rotorzip and strat ginding
i think is 1/4 of a inch across and 3/4 down the cylinder
and on the griddle just grind a little in the center
but icoul dbe wrong on the 1/4 or 3/4 double check on that or just meshure he with of the rods easy

how much does some charge to do this shit, or is it really that easy, you need to do that shit your self.

I wish I still had block at my house to practice on..... I need to cop a piece of shit and practice.

^Well, if you haven't noticed the very same retail business can stock different merch. at different stores. I'm sure I spotted at least one at Lowes though...they just so happen to be the closest to where I live, so they get me business. LOL

yea i just called a local machine shop and they want the following

60 to notch the block and crank girdle
10 dollars to hot tank the block
20 dollars to put my head on the cleaning bench and clean up the valves

so im looking at about 100 all together to get it done

good price?

yea i know but my buddy just got his gti head back from them and it looked sooo nice

but for 125 it really cant be beat seeing that my friend got the work done for that price

idk im thinking spending the 200 on getting the head worked and the block notched and seeing other machine shops wanting 150 for just notching i feel like its a good deal.
