You are not the first to drop a valve, don't beat yourself up. At least you didn't lose it, lol!
That's what I "thought" I had it at but I was just curious what would happen if I disconnected it. I don't know why I did it I mean I knew what would happened but curiosity got the best of me. Maybe my subconscious wanted me to do that and say fuck it there is the reason to slap new heads on it..I took Sunday off to finish it. Then on to the cam swap just gotta get the melling pump from Troy and wait for my new chain and sprockets.

I've been looking around and I really like the KB set up. Not many C5's have them. Would be something different around here

Don't put a KB on your car! There's a reason you don't see them lol. In this case you don't want to be different. Centri, Nos or Turbo

Was about to say that. Theres a reason that alot of people with cars that come twin screws dont stick with them.

The ctsv guys and cobra guys are the only people with any real success with positive displacement blowers on "street" cars

I've had great success with my twin screw. The only reason I'm getting rid of it is because twin screw blowers and big power don't go together very easily because it starts getting hard to control IAT'S.

The twin screw kits for the c5 I'd stay away from. There was a guy that had his car shut down on him at desert fest because his car got extremely hot while waiting in line. He came and got me, plugged in my HP tuners and found that his IAT'S were close to 200.

As with any forced induction (except nitrous)expect the car to run a little hotter than when it was n/a. Intercoolers and having to modify the fan shroud cause Corvettes to run a littler hotter than a stock car.

Well I finally had time to finish the spring swap was pretty easy once you get going..

Here is the tool..besides the guy using it..



I just used fitting you find in a compression tester..Figured I better not drink during this process..



Take out the shrader valve and screw it into the cylinder you are working on. I also used the TDC method because I didn't wanna end up what I did on the first one almost dropping the damn thing..





Tighten everything up and then start cranking down..SOme of the locks needed a tap on them to come loose..





Once you take those locks off you just pull the spring/retainer out and your left with the seal and seat.



old stuff.



I used a pair of plies and a little twist and turn and they come right out and used a magnetic tool for the seats to come out.





The install is the opposite oil everything up drop the seat in. Put the new seals in and I used the tool that your supposed to use I didn't like the socket and hammer idea. It was 7 bucks off ebay..J-42078 Valve Stem Oil Seal Installer







I read somewhere that the locks are a pain to install and use some lube to keep them on the top of the valve. It worked like a champ..



one is done..



15 more to go..It goes quick after the first one..all done!!!



I'm trying to free this Friday up to get the cam and meth in..:cheers:

Thanks!! It's been fun and I didn't know how to do any of this but with reading, searching looking at how to's, helping hands and asking a million questions things have gone pretty smooth so far. I know most of you guys have done/seen this but just something I can look back in the future and say" What a waste of fucking money" lol
