So, after about a month of dickin' around diagnosing it, I found a couple of loose valves (side to side play in their guides). Took it apart and found the problem. Its now back together with stainless steel intake and inconel exhaust valves. The guides are manganese bronze. Let's see if I can get more than 5000 miles between engine drops....
Oh Great, they are doing my heads now. What type of valve guides did get from EBS that went bad? Should i specify manganese bronze? They are N/A heads though...

Just Beautiful Don.
