    I'm doing a job rotation to SE. I feel like it has nothing to do engineering and more to do with project management. It'll be nice on the resume though.

    I have my education in Electrical Engineering, but I've been too far removed from my craft for a long time. School was more rigorous than my current work, so this "problem" will give me a...

    I don't think you would need a spring compressor for h&r sports. You may get lucky in that regard.
    Everything is very easy. Unless you run into a red Loctite'd nut, it's a remove and replace deal. I...

    Great! Glad you all are joining me in this journey!



    That is correct. "Port matching" the exhaust to an aftermarket header on our engines increases the port volume considerably! This does...

    ZHP Cylinder Head Optimization

    As most of you may or may not know, I bent a valve in my ZHP a few weeks ago. Ever since, I've been on a philosophical journey to see how the stock head can be improved. I've devoured several forum...

    I wish it was an S54 or LS swap but no. It's a bent valve fix.

    I'm trying not to fall down the hole on this one, but I just found a stupid deal on some Supertech valves. I should just stop there....
