Well decide to change the head for an AEB. Currently working on the gasket matching and getting the AWM head apart to get the new valves out. Yes I had the AWM head rebuilt with all new valves and seals and now I'm taking it apart!!!! I'm crazy and didn't think things through. But its all good. Might as well do it now instead of later. Also got some goodies from 034!!!!!!

Also ecu is back from its trip to Canada. Just have to swing by Force Fed and grab it. Than drop the head off to get rebuilt and wait some more!!!!!

is going with the aeb just saving you some work? couldn't you just use and aeb gasket and match the ports? or is there another physical difference? I have to get off my ass and start on my head project.

you cannot make a small port into a big port, the castings make it impossible...

You need an aluminum specific burr. The cutting edges are father apart on the aluminum specific cutters which helps keep them from getting gummed up. Mine easily did the head and intake manifold runners and is still like new. I think it was about 35 bucks.


You should leave anti-reversion steps in there. That means that the intake manifold shouldn't be gasket matched. It should be a little smaller with an even lip all the way around. The easy way is with the gasket and a sharpie. Lay the gasket on the head and mark the openings with the sharpie. Cut the outer edge of the line so the line disappears after cutting. Do the same with the head but cut on the inner edge so the line is still there after cutting.

jim, can you clarify what you mean by "outer edge" and "inner edge"

Small circle and large circle. If you mark both the head and intake manifold with the Sharpie you'll have identical marks. That line has a thickness. If you cut on the inside of the line then the line is still visible and you've got a smaller opening that if you cut the outside of the line. That difference is probably .060-.090" and is enough to create that reversion step.
