    Hi Rick.
    Hope all Is well with you and your family through this ****.
    I was discussing cylinder heads with my engine builder and I'm probably going to end up with the 245 npp heads. 1) because it's a fairly large engine and 2)we could get them in 80cc chambers and take it down to what we need to get around 9/9.5:1. Do you run spread ports on your engine? I "don't" think I'll ever turn it up to the level your at, just curious if you feel it's necessary. I already have the headers for standard ports, but could easily sell them to get spread ports.
    I'm probably over thinking this as I normally do. It with probably make more power then I'll ever need at 10 psi with 200cc heads! lol!
    As usual, any thought on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Hi. My name is Ron and I ha question for you. I installed a super sniper on my car and it works great on my n/a motor. I have a pro charger I will be installing this winter with a new motor. my question is I wanted to run water meth injection and I was wondering if you figured out how to have the sniper control it? if so what functions in the sniper do you have to use and what water meth injection kit did you use. any info would be much appreciated. thanks

    Hope I'm doing this right, trying to send a PM.
    A while back you responded to a thread I started about looking for Eagle crs5700slw rods.
    I probably missed out by now but you were offering me an Eagle crank and rods.
    Just sold one of my other cars, so now have funds to get back to building the 327.

    Deal still available by any chance?

    I use height mic like one of these:
    www.jegs.com/p/Proform/Proform-Valve-Spring-Height-Mic/748233/10002/-1


    I wouldn't guess, it could be way, way off. Get a height mic, figure what you have, then shop for springs.

    Hey,

    I was reading through a reply you made a couple of days ago regarding valve spring install height. Your reply about your process was very helpful. One quick question . . . what tool did you use to measure the installed height of each spring, retainer and keeper combo?

    I'm working on rebuilding a set of heads for a street cruiser and doing the work myself. I'm new to the intricacies of head work and quickly learning a lot. I had been tempted to just chuck the new springs, retainers and keepers in and go; but, I figure why not take some extra time and get things set up as best I can.
