Default Z06 head mod question

I picked up a salvage car and it looks like it was loved...had a carbon fiber C6.R intake, headers, MSD starter, etc. I pulled off the valve covers and it was the cleanest top end Iíve ever seen.

Does anyone know if there is a EASY visual way to tell if the heads on a Z06 have been modified? That is, do I have to remove the valve springs to inspect? What should I look for?...just bronze valve guides?

any help appreciated!!

Does it have black ARP head bolts? Thatís usually an indicator but some like myself used new OEM torque to yield bolts when we R&Ríd the heads.

Post some pics! Of the car and the damage too. I have rebuilt a number of Copart cars

Great idea! It was kind of a basket case...basically got hit really bad in the back. Trying to think of a project to put it in! ;>}

Pull a valve spring off and look at the guides (material)
