Curly, there's a more obvious place for us older guys to drop 10#'s. LOL.

Nice to see youngsters doing quality work. Gives me hope!

Alright the head is being worked on as we speak by a good friend of mine.



The plan is to keep the stock valvetrain, replace the valve stem seals, port and polish, 3 angle valve job and also last but not least. Cryogenic Treatment

I bought the head from someone local, claimed to have come right off a running motor...but from the pictures I'm about to post...you decide

It was pretty filthy







After removal of all the valve train came the jet wash and off to cryogenics

Here is the temperature data sheet the cryogenics place provided me. The head shell and parts were brought down to -300*F for 24 hours, then was slowly brought back up to 300*F and then brought back down to atmospheric temperature.



Back from jet wash and cryo



Onto the Intake manifold gasket matching


3 of 4 Intake ports matched


Also started on the combustion chambers



Exhaust ports being ported .20 over. Still needs media blast and polish


Aaannndd the valve stems showed up

Awesome! Did you find out the material number for the head? And the before and after hardness? I work at a heat treating plant. I used to run the vacuum department which is where our cryo furnace is.

I did ask for a certification stating all of that important information, they haven't furnished me one yet.

So my only real proof it's that recorded temp/time sheet :/

Well its been awhile...time for another update.

Alek (AKA on the forum as 240Timmons) did my head for my Miata build, needless to say I am more than happy.

I bought this head from another Miata owner who claimed he removed it out of a running car. It was completely disgusting.

The services I paid for were:
Cleaning
Cryogenic Treatment (Recorded data sheet was provided)
Port and Polish
3 angle valve job
Supertech valve seals - Essentially a stock rebuild with some minor changes

Turnaround time was great. After cleaning the head he came across a valve that was bent on a level enough to bind during travel. Replaced the valve and kept going with it.

The port and polish came out great. I will have the head flow benched to show some CFM numbers after the headwork.

Onto the pictures!









After jet wash and cryo




Port and polish started







He even micro polished the solid lifters




After P&P, and deck






Onto assembly






After picking it up







And right after I brought it home the first thing I did was mock up my fuel delivery setup just for ***** and giggles. I'm diggin it




BIG props to Alek Timmons. Thanks again bud
