Replacing the valves
I have a 2004 RXP w/70hrs I'm replacing the valves but going to use the same springs I'm not looking to race the machine just want it to be reliable and last any suggestions.

I am in a similar position as you. I have an 04 GTX 4 Tec SC with about 79 hours. This will be my winter project. I plan to change the flywheel bolts as well. I have a manual but it does not seem to take you step by step. It seems to focus on main items and assume you know how to get to that point. I wish I could find a general step by step to start from. Please keep us informed. I am interested in any tips you pick up along the way. Thanks.

+1 on the Supertechs, but 4Tec engines are hard on the exhaust seats, I have seen carbon and erosion on most exhaust seats, so it is a good idea to check the seats carefully and get a seat job done when installing new valves.
