    Engine is coming out tonight! feel like a nervous dad. Going to give a hand tomorrow and I know my mechanic will want to change the head gasket and inspect the heads. Since the compression was fine should I just hold him back??? I need the car together and running well for the 24 of Nov when we have our season finally, a three hour race. the more invasive we get the more worried I am!

    I'd only tear it apart if I suspected a problem.

    Can't he use a borescope to check the valves/heads instead of pulling them?

    Probably about half that, if not working. Depends what's not working.

    Ok. Engine out and hsve some pics tomorrow. Got a bit of a fright when we opened the LM intake cams box and found the cams in COMP cams boxes.... I guess that they were just using the old boxes??

    The cams seem to have a longer duration so I guess they are ok....

    Maybe Comp does the grind for L&M...Or L&M uses Comp cores and does a regrind on them?
