This is nuts, I blame the site update for the failure.

I'll take some over the weekend this morning:

Thanks, Robbie. I'm going to run 10mm ID line F/R, using AN -08 fittings from the pumps through the filter, with ORB-06 fittings for the returns.I was looking at fuel filters - I was going to use

that definetly sucks but you are also very very lucky :lol:

i would also question the quality of the other valves, and with the head out i would replace every one of them with oem valves once and for all.

on a good note, once you get that fixed this thing is gonna scream up top, finally B)

im suprised your not using an oem headgasket, thats about the one thing i never buy aftermarket lol.

How does the valve seat look like? Any damage there?

You can kinda see the mark on the seat in the pic - he will likely have to regrind the seat. Ordered a new valve guide incase that has to go. Hopefully the corresponding exhaust valve to not damaged.

He's gonna recheck for spring binding - since the lift is greater. He's pretty sure he went through that when the head was setup for the Enem Cams. He said no sign of binding marks on the spring, but he'll double check anyway. I also emailed Enem to confirm that the stock springs are compatible - which was my understanding.

The HG is Victor Reinz, never had a problem with them before.

EDIT: Jan from Enem confirmed that the stock springs are what they use, running 8500 rpm, with their cams, so definitely not a binding issue. I guess it's just not my month...

Yes, but I waited over 10 months at which point I just decided to get a 04 R engine. That was for my old 98 head, but he said he could get them for the new ones as well. Price was very good too.

What brand are the valves? I have federal mogul, they were cheap and seem good.

I would definitely replace that guide.

German brand.

He's gonna check the guide, if it needs to be replaced, he will.

What about that poor piston? Please don't say it will buff out :lol:

I just removed the sharp edges, that's it. It hit in the middle, not the outside edge. Progress pics, still have some cleanup to do

Hussain just to make you feel better.

My audi S4 did the same thing after valve replacement

And I bought OEM stuff , $44 per valve.

This is some f... up bad luck

Ouch.

Yeah, I'll be happy when this is over.

Did the final cleanup on the pistons, smoothed out / chamfered the rough edges from the valve collision. ground down the stamping marks from Mahle, wet(oil) sanded with 1000 grit
