    Re: 3D printing cylinder heads ???

    Todd, I actually knew about the valve to piston and valve to valve issues. I just didn't know where that started happening, especially because we do know that stock lift is something like .330"? I...

    Re: 3D printing cylinder heads ???

    Why does it matter what a head flows at a lift that's pretty much physically impossible? I haven't checked yet (Rick Diogo could speak to this maybe), but I don't think the Masi can get a valve .500...

    Re: 3D printing cylinder heads ???

    Could it be done? Sure. It would cost more than just casting a custom head, though. Between the materials, machine time, and post-processing to get a truly functional product would shoot the cost...

    Re: Tilt steering column bent while driving?!

    I've thought the same thing, but holy crap it was bad! I honestly can't see myself driving the car the way I did with the wheel loose like that. Maybe I did and didn't realize it, but man...one...

    Re: Tilt steering column bent while driving?!

    I agree...sounds like the tilt mount screws came loose. Happened on my '88 somehow while the car was sitting in an airport parking lot! When I parked it, everything was fine. Came back, damn wheel...

    Re: Billet forward and direct drums

    I *HIGHLY* suggest the hard coating if you want any sort of longevity out of the drums. Even 7076 T6 won't stand up to sharp steels pounding against it and eventually the drums will get wear notches...

    Re: 1990 g-body BCM

    There is the "standard" and the "premium". I think the '90 is unique due to the headlight controls not being integrated until '91.

    You cut the *struts* or the *springs*?

    If you've lowered the car, and adjusted the camber bolts to maximum and STILL have positive camber, there's something else going on. ALL of that adds to...

    You need the FSM for your car and the donor car. Yes, you will have a good bit of splicing to do. 1990 started a whole new wiring scheme for G/J-body cars that include a BCM (Body Control Module)....

    Re: Floor Pan Restoration

    There are NO "off-the-shelf" body restoration panels for these cars. If you need to replace metal, you're either cutting it out of another car, or you're making it by hand.
