Well as with a couple of you Pala mis-shifted and wipped out all of his exhaust valves, so he contacted me to build him a set of heads. Luckily I keep an extra set of heads around for such occasions . Now what we did differently here is of course ported the intake side and put in TL-S cams, but he decided to get TL-S springs as well. After analyzing them in comparison to the stock AV6 springs, this was probably a good move. The TL-S intake springs only have a 5lb higher spring pressure than the AV6 intake springs, but the TL-S exhaust springs are 17lbs heavier than the stock AV6 springs, this gives a decent shot of not destroying the exhaust valves during a mis shift, it is not as much a difference as the 32lb difference with the SS springs I have been using in my more extream builds, but might be just enough to snap the vales back fast enough in a 8500RPM mis-shift.






Pala, the other head will be done today and should be shipping them out tomorrow.

According to KMS the valvetrain is good to 9K+.

Well, Pala, I may have to delay shipping to you, one of the cams you got has more surface rust on it than I like to see, I am first going to try to go thru my guy at OEMAcuraParts.com to get a replacement ASAP, if that fails we will have to deal with Delray to get a replacement, but my place has always done good by me, LOL, another one of my customers just dropped about $1800 on them for his NA J37 build for his 03 CL-S.

Just got off the phone with Lee at OEMAcuraParts.com, they actually had one in stock (LOL, I guess we have been ordering enough of them that they are now a stocked item.) and is shipping it out today so I should see it in a couple days and get your heads out the next day to you.

damn, when i redid my heads year with typeS cams I could only get one typeS intake spring cuz that was all that was in stock in the entire country. i had my machinist measure spring pressure on it and it was around 3lbs stiffer from what i remember. i Wish i knew that about the exhaust springs...i just assumed they'd be the same...

Thanks Paul for taking care of that. I thought the same thing when I took a peek at them but that's how they were shipped to me.
