I have a few questions for you guys/gals. I will soon be starting to home port some stock e7's to try to get a bit more power. I don't have a spring compressor yet so there is nothing I can do right now. By visual inspection, the valves do look good, so I want to take them to get a valve job done. With my setup I will have(see sig), would you recommend a 3 angle or a 5 angle valve job. Also, are there certain angles that need to be cut into the valves? I didn't know if there are better angles then others, as well as the length of that certain angle's side. Should the machine shop know what they are doing with this?

I am still in the process of finding a good machine shop near my new place. Another question, approximately how much would this cost me. I know prices vary by areas and such, but could someone give me what they think a good price would be?

Do I need to bring in the heads to the machine shop as well, or just the valves(don't know if they do anything to the head)? It's be nice if I could just bring in the valves, well because they are light. Those e7's are heavy suckers! Also, when I go to reinstall everything, is there a certain way to put the valves back in, or do I just lock in the springs and go? I hear a lot of talk about valve geometry and how it can be off and such. I don't want to go through all of that work just to have to do it again.

I'm done with my questions now, I swear.

Any help I could get would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

take in the heads and the valves they usally grind the valves and the seats. after I install the valves ,springs and the keepers I like to take a deadblow hammer and give each valve a good rap or two on the head to kinda bounce the valve and make sure the keeper is seated in the valve noch good, just a little extra insurance
