heya

finally getting the build ready to go for my sporty DD.

I'm taking the head in to get machined, and set up. I have a few questions about this. I do not plan on adding anything aftermarket, simply replacing all seals and valves, checking and replacing the springs if needed, getting it machined to go back onto the head nice and flat, and a multi angle valve job.

My questions are these.

1. if i get the 3/5/multi angle, will that be ok on otherwise stock internals

2. is there anything else i should ask them to do, depending on cost i may ask for port matching for intake and exhaust, but thats very cost dependent. but is there anything else that would be worthwhile.

3. what headgasket should I use for a relatively standard engine (i have the I/h/e setup but no aftermarket parts on the inside yet)

Again this is mainly just for a sporty little DD, I decided to skip on the cam and other internal changes until I have a second car. I will get the thing tuned properly at some point after geting it back on the road, probably a week or so after.

the 3 angle valve job will be ok, considering thats basically just cleaning the valves - they are ground at 3 diff. angles from the factory.

the port matching will help a lot, especially with the intake. if they specialize in v8 performance, make sure they dont polish the intake side of the head. id also have them check for flatness of the gasket surface. and lastly id use either a d16z6 or d16y8 headgasket. they are both metal but the d16y8 one compresses thinner for a little boost in compression.

ok cool thanks for the heads up

their standard is the multi angle valve job, will that be ok?

also the place i am taking it to has a honda specialist and was rec'd here on the board, so i'm thinking i'll be ok.

I just want to make sure i don't need to change any other parts internally for the little bit i want to do, p29s and such are coming when i have another car and can sit with an engine down for a while.

y8 headgasket for more compression. believe they are 2 layer vs 3.

Do everything you can afford to it now, so later on all you have to do is throw in the cam, upgraded valvetrain and be set! What I had my machinist do to mine was the 3-angle, backcut my valves, cleaned up the bowls (not polished), milled 10 thousandths, and the standard clean, hot tank, and a light coating of "factory silverish" paint
