That does look sweet, but it would be a sea of blue inside the engine bay.

If someone would send me the cam covers, I could get them painted the same colour as the car and then the polished front and valley covers (take a close look at the mod to the numbers on the timing cover) would break up the colour a bit.

So HKS are letting you down aye Pete?
I saw some Tomei dumps getting installed recently and they were works of art. No mods needed on those bad boys.
In fact the quality was outstanding, and they came with everything.

Hey Pete, is that the oil return fitting that Spool make for the back of the head?  Good thing?  Looking forward to seeing the oil mods.

Pete,

One of the spare heads I picked up had a pressed in -10 fitting and I thought the bottom of the opening was a bit high to be real effective. Was considering welding a box around the welsh plug like this but a little less intrusive.

It would be a shame to have all this bling hidden inside an engine block, so I reckon this would make a neat coffee table.

I have a nice piece of clear glass that could sit over the head. pm if interested!

Either that or we can machine up a block made of perspex so that all the good bits can be seen.

Thanks for the pictures of the head Pete. I will have to take another look at the head on my bench. It looks like it was just the two drains at the rear of the head that you did.
