The Saga continues!

Well, I'm looking for more amunition.!

This AM I contacted the Shop to determine the status of my Valve, Head job as the Head is at the Machine Shop being worked.

The latest comment was that Valve Seals and Guides were needed and they had to drop them off this AM. It seems that the latest story is that the car was an accident waiting to happen. the chain install triggered the problems and the valves are showing "burnt" due to the car running lean.

I gotta feel this is an effort to justify the job and to get paid for the work. No doubt that will happen. My question is, what makes it run lean? This guy has done all the tuning over the last two years and the car ran great. Can the darn thing run that good and still be set up lean!
