If your talking about the shop in your sig, I'm sure they got you covered good. My cars were done there and they came out great. I stop by there alot and always nasty builds going on with the Gen 5's. There shop car was a A6 and hauled at the track.

Good luck with the build

I mean good as in the stock L99 driveline and suspension can run low 10's good for a long time without breaking or needing any upgrades. Just need a good trans tune and cooler and your set. M6 cars need loads of upgraded parts to do the same thing. Just like we need new lifters and other valvetrain parts to run fast reliably.

9. For L99's it's also a good idea to get your heads cncd and ported
10. Swapping out your L99 intake valves to hollow Ls3 valves
11. Rocker arm trunion upgrade.
To name a few off the top of my head.
What is wrong with the intake valves?

Weight bud, that's the only thing. The Ls3 are hollow and the L99 are solid stainless steel. But since the heads gotta come off why not upgrade since your going in? Just my .2

Talk a few shops and see what they USE and feel good around. Go with what your tuner and or installer wants to use. not what the thread wants to use.

for example my shop uses there own in house springs, that they make. So i used there springs.

unless he is going to spin above 7000 rpms hollow valves dont do any good. Also dont forget to upgrade lifters and lifter buckets if youre using oem style lifters.
