Sh!t happens dude. Last month the aftermarket heads on my truck warped causing a head gasket to blow. After pulling the heads I found the valve seals pulled out of the heads and rode up the valve stems. Upon further inspection I found the inner valve springs to be broken damaging the spring pads. I guess my cam is too big...:screwy:
So instead of machining the heads and replacing/upgrading the whole valve train, I chose to just buy a whole new set of heads and now the engine runs better than before.

Let me know how it turns out for ya

Oh and good call on dropping the under drive pulleys. I don't see a point using them on a street driven vehicle.
