Sorry, I missed your reply a couple of days ago for some reason.  Glad you got it sorted out.  (We were talking about the same thing, after a fashion.)

Also dropped off supertech valves, iconel exhaust, and IE springs.

Got my heads back. they look nice.

Building them the lifters i ordered from IE 5 of the exhaust lifters do not fit, different part numbers.

I'm getting so sick of company mess ups pretty frustrated.

stuck again until lifters resolved.

IE overnighted me the correct lifters.
-got heads built.
-got drivers head installed
-dropped an arp stud down the water jacket on passenger side so decided to call it quits for the day on the car to avoid compounding mistakes.

Maiden voyage complete! Drove around house up and down some hills loading the motor up as much as possible.

Things discovered:
-alignment is terrifying.
-not shifting as smoothly as I'd like, but did improve noticeably just from first drive.
-to loud. not obnoxious but I thought resonator going into muffler would be nice and quiet but it still is to loud for my sleeper goal. Might weld in a glass pack section, might put a silencer on.

Things forgot:
-the rear diff is still welded, completely forgot. Oh the joys of driving around with a locked rear end....
-forgot to hook up clutch switch, though seemed no side effect.

Terrifying moments:
-Header wrap smokes when breaking in.... I thought for sure the whole thing was about to go up in flames lol.

Not sure how I'm going to make it 750 miles before taking this dam 1.5lb spring out!
