Re: My continuing delemma.....
It's a shame you don't have the $$$ to do what you want. While the heads are off check out having .030 milled off to raise the compression to 10.3. That shouldn't be too expensive. Later you can change the cam and valve springs with the heads still on, if you're careful. I am hoping to do the cam/springs trick in a couple months without removing the heads. It's been a long time since I've done spring changes with the head on, but it wasn't too tough as I recall. I don't plan to mess with the heads unless I have a problem, but if I have to take them off for any reason I'll for sure have them milled.
