Default The Grond Chronicles : The Bent Valve Cometh, Part II [Dialup, you know the script]

So if you have been under a rock over the last few weeks, here is a recap : I dropped an exhaust valve on my current big cammed N/A LS1 2 weeks ago doing THIS

The details of the teardown are here http://forums.corvetteforum.com/show...7&forum_id=103

Huge thanks to Bill Curlee and Red Vette 93 for braving the Frozen Tundra and lending me a much appreciated hand.

So without further ado, here are the pix.

Bill Curlee decided to port my "new" LS1 heads
Heads were FREE courtesy of East Coast Supercharging


Go Bill!!


Then he said "I just cleaned up the ports a little"


I must admit, they look

that is great that there are so many people from your area to give you a hand. I my area there are not that many that would do something like that.

A big for Bill Curlee and Red Vette 93

You might get to drive Grond to Florida after all.


Speaking of ECS and heads... Chris got my ETP heads in on Friday. The Vette goes to ECS and under the knife Tuesday afternoon.


Have fun with Grond and good luck
