the valve train is been modified for the Bates Engineering Solid Lash Adjustors. Because of this I sold my OTTP Stage 4 cams and we got Ecotec cam blanks and had them custom ground by a cam guy John knew to include a slow down ramp for the solid lash adjustors. you cannot run hydraulic camshafts on solid lifters.

because of this the head was given a valve job and the valve stem were machined to the correct heights.

ill be sending the oil pan, timing covers and ATI dampers to John next week to be on hand when the engine is timed and fully assembled.

As soon as the cams are ground the head is going on.

the only other items im waiting on:

- Get my turbo housing, electric water pump fittings, and IM and TB from ARM Performance
- Get my Tial Wastegate (they sent the wrong one)
- Pickup a boost controller (likely going with the SE7En
- Need to order an intercooler and charge piping... damn why so expensive
- Need to Order electric waterpump
- need to order WOT BOX
- need to get injectors

so have received my wastegate (thanks Alan) and boost controller, working now on the electronics... still waiting on cams and then should be set.

Next up is waiting on a big box of love from ARMPerformance. Im sure he is tired of having our parts in his way, they have been there since last August.

I like the look of 225's on my 8" rim. Gives it some slight sidewall stretch but nothing crazy. You could squeeze 245's on there if you wanted. Not sure what the offset is on your rims but on my PF01's that are +40 I put some 5mm spacers in the front to make it flush with the fender and match the rear wheels.
