Seafoam...didn't you just build the engine, or did you not tear it down? Please get more longer videos.

I just don't see how they could be working fine in my car for 2 years, and then the day after you put them in your car they're giving you problems. I think it's something else.

So what's the difference between the 2 engine? You've got new valves in this one now but what else? Looks a good bit faster

I had the valves back cut and the supertech valve spring kit installed. Thats it as far as the engine work goes. The compression on the 94 block is a lil lower then on my MSM block as well.
