Hmmmmm, this bring a little controversy to my plans. I might just have to go with the Comp Cams and valvesprings for right now instead of changing heads until I send them off to be ported. That tool should be a lifesaver, placing my order......

dan newman can also sell ya that tool for $36........i ordered it from dan (even though it was more expensive by about $5-$6) to give him more business, considering everything he has done for this club and with all the discounts he gives.....he's saved me lots of money in the last 8 months since i started ordering from him

yea......the handle is different but it is the same thing.....dan has been outstanding, just as everyone here mentions, that the measly $6 extra dollars is nothing (to me) compared to what you will save if you frequently order form him

Yeah, I second that, I didn't know he had it, or I'd have probably already bought it from him. The fact that he's local to me helps, but if he was in NY, I'd still order from him.

Does that elbow work on the 94/95 engines, or just 96+ NPI/PI? Is there any aftermarket elbow for the 94/95 engines for that matter? All I've seen so far is custom machine work to remove some of the restrictive guts.

Just 96+, you'll have to do the old gutting thing, or wait a little while, I may have another solution if I can get the EGR passages right. I'm cutting one out of aluminum stock, and I'll finish it up as soon as I see my car again, but be warned, the time and labor for me to do one for someone would be kinda pricey. I've got about 14 hours into the one I have now, and it still needs quite a bit of work, but I'm sure once one is done, I can cut the time in half, the first one is always hardest.

its kinda hard to see with such a crappy pic, but one side of that plastic triangle has the ridges that hold it in place between the timing chains

Maybe I'm a bit nervous about it, but I'd never use one of those. How do you know the chain hasn't moved over a tooth on the crank gear doing it that way? The last thing I'd want would be a cam that skipped a tooth and was 17* off. PTV clearance is a tough issue with certain cams the way it is. When my heads and short block are at risk, it should be a no-brainer not to take chances on it. The only big pain is that PS bolt, which should get dremel'ed off the first time it comes off. Besides, you should be swapping that 2 piece crank sprocket for a 1 piece anyway. Need I remind you of the Frankenvalve the good Dr. has pics of?

with the cam sprocket still on the cam, you slide it in between the timing chain, and it sorta 'locks' itself there with the teeth that it has (it's still a two-person job in the sense that one person should be holding it there so it doesnt fall out accidentally).......so it keeps the tensioners from collapsing in and pulling the chain/sprocket down.....then pull the sprocket off the cam, replace cam, carefully put sprocket back on new cam once it is secured, and release the tool from in-between the timing chains........so no need to pull the timing chain cover....just the valve covers
