Thats the easy way to do it. I did the same thing but the shop was unaware of the issue with CNC'd LS3 heads and the exposed intake rocker bolt. Burned a ton of oil the first 1,000 miles and all valve seals were perfect. 1 call to Trick Flow, the guy immediately knew the problem and sure enough that was it. A little teflon on the bolts and problem solved.

Trick flow Gen X 255 heads. Yes constantly smoked like a valve seal issue. Read your install instructions on your AFR heads, it's in there. People dont read instructions anymore, lol we are men, who needs them. But it says it in there.
