I have a good set of heads(441) which have screw in studs and guide plates but our rules do not allow screw in studs and guide plates and i was wondering if there is a way to take out the guide plates and install a shim or washer to take up the space of the GP. and also is ther anything i can do to disguise the look of the stud so that it would look like a pressed in stud... thanx....

They make stock appearing screw in studs pretty much the same as what you've got with out the shoulder.

I have found that a proper fitting lock washer is about the same thickness as a plate.

Remember, the head will be cut down where the stud goes and the other studs might not be at the right length when installed.

Do they actually tech to see if you have screw in's?!? I wouldn't worry about it. Run what you got til you get cought. If they actually said something, just make up an excuse, like you bought the motor that way and never lifted the valve cover. lol. I know that theres so much power lying in those guide plates and screw in studs!
