    Dude, I finally had to tear into one of those 4.2 gm straight sixes last week. It's the most difficult head I've ever done, by far. Did you end up leaving the timing cover on? Cuz I didn't, this one was leaking and had to come off. Plus, without a wedge of some kind I didn't see a way to leave the cover on.

    Also, five of the head bolts busted off in the block. Basically it's a nightmare...and it still has to go back together too.

    Thanks for replying back. I have the MBRP SS 409 EXHAUST SYSTEM sitting in my kitchen, I'm gonna slap it on my truck and see how she runs. I hate CV UNITS.
