    Ok guys so I adjusted some of the valves that felt too lose. Engine sounds a bit smother. But I now notice that my idle is a little bit higher. Previously it would idle at 750rpm (fully warm) now it seem to idle at at either 800-900rpm. Sometimes it will sit at 900 and after a while go down to...

    I just swapped a set of K20A cams into my A2 yesterday and was wondering, do I use the valve lash specs from the A2 or do I have to use the ones from the K20A. I searched but couldn't find anything on the topic. Any positive info is appreciated. Thank you.

    Got a question for you all, If a mechanic is performing a valve adjustment on your vechicle at 100K are there any problems he or she should be able to spot while having all the engine head guts exposed? Kind of things i'm talking about is like worn seals, piston rings, bent rods, you know...

    I'm checking the valve lash and have the car on jack stands and when I put the car in gear I can't get the cams to turn so that I can make sure the cylinders are at TDC. I've tried all the gears and nothing in the engine will turn. What gives, I'm sure I'm overlooking something small.

    Any tips on valve lash settings for using A3 exhaust rocker arms on both intake and exhaust cams? I was using the recommended stock settings for A2 intake/exhaust, but felt like more power was made using a more loose setting (+.005/.010) but the valvetrain made a bit more noise Any insight...
