    valve questions

    hey guys i am pretty sure my head gasket bit the dust. pushing coolant out overflow but none in the oil. but my main question is since its an 05 and my guess having the original valves what are the best valves to put in it? the riva/ferras or the supertechs?

    hey i see where you are coming from but i have a uncle that lives just across the boarder so its only about a 35 min drive and get to visit family. so i save large on shipping and dutties. i guess i will order a set of the supertechs. and stick with a stock head gasket?

    Supertech's are the best on the market right now hands down.

    I was saying I had valve seals if you needed them If your rebuilding your head. I went from a 800.00 dollar cylinder head job to a 1500.00 job and a 600.00 set of pistons to 2900.00 in Parts and short block work ;( I Have many factory spares new bought parts before I decided While I was in there I could do this and that) If need lol

    +1 On stock Oem Head Gasket It is by Far the best Head Gasket Option
