Finally the head is off and disassembled. Took awhile but we got it off and are working on smoothing out transitions in the casting of the head. Am also going to port match the IM while its off. It is already getting bored to match the 1st gen throttle body. While the parts are off the EGR and FIAV are going on also. Unfortunatly I talked to Bullseye today and they are not casting the Mitsu turbine housing for another 2 weeks. I am not sure whether I am going to eliminate the AC while its apart as you can see from the God aweful mess in there. But all in all its coming along slowly but surely. The blizzard that we are getting is really not helping out but its gonna take some time anyways to get the turbo and casting and other parts so until then this is how she sits.

I guess I'm responsible for the delay in your project, because I bought the last BEP HX35 housing he had in stock on 2-8-10. Sorry about that...LOL

What are you doing to the head?
Well I have new valve train going in BC springs and retainers, Kelford 272 cams (delta grinds from some billet cores), getting it resurfaced, and am smoothing up the rough casting marks in the chambers. Also replacing the valve stem seals. Guides, rockers, keeps, and lifters are going back in.

Yeah I hope that I can get mine asap but who knows when they will cast the next batch. He said two weeks and that was last week sometime. I will call middle of next week, and get one ordered hopefully. Then all I will need is new motor mounts and a new idler pulley.
