Hey Eastside,
Dont want to sound stupid, Im not much of a car genius. But is that a 4 or 6 cylinder engine. My guess is its a 4 banger, but does it have 2 or 4 valves per cylinder. Our track just started this 4 cylinder Hobby stock class but must have only 2 valves per cylinder. If it falls under this catergory, we are very interested. Thanks

i would ask the track where u run and see if u can run a dohc engine if they say yes then i would because they will never pull this head off and check its not easy and very very time consuming and impossible t o do with out pulling the motor out of the car it your decsion either way but it does have 4 calves per chamber. im selling the car so cheap i bacilly just want enough to buy a new seat, belts and possibly a new firesuit
