Aren't the intake valves heavier? If that were the case, I'd put the stronger springs there.

Got a call from TJ.. said he had the second motor out.

Meanwhile I was knee deeping fighting a TA mount out of an MT 97 SSE. LOL

Hey TJ..I drove that car around the block 6 hours after pulling it into the bay. Yours is going to be a fun one when you get done.
