well i bent either one of the two or both exhaust valves in the #2 cylinder. I need to know if anyone has some stock valves and how much they would let me get them for?
i need these asap. I hate having my car running like shit.

leak down test, you can hear the air coming out of the exhaust side through the header. IF you rotate the crankshaft to where my number 2 piston is to the top and compress it with air. The the valve(s) are bent if it doesnt hold compression. In this case the air was coming out through the header. So it is an exhaust vavle(s).

i felt like a complete moron. I mean everyone mis shifts. Its a given. I just never thought about even being able to go to 2nd from 3rd. Beyond that i was just f-ing around the streets. Oh yeah brudda i was topped out in third. and what do you konw WWWAAHHHMMMMMM. 2nd gear!!!! i didnt go over 3000rpms for a few days. I left the car running for like 30 minutes. I completely forgot that my vafc has a memory. I looked at the memory for the tach and i just about had a heart attack. When i saw it, i starting to feel what it was goign through. FREAKING 9879 rpms. I am lucky ya'll. It could have been A LOT worse. I am really lucky that it is at the most two valves. Could have been my whole valvetrain.:bh:

ouch, I did the same thing last summer at the track. I wish it was the valves that got bent, cause then I coulda nailed the dealer under the warranty.

But no, it was my clutch that got destroyed, which isn't warrantied. You don't even wanna know how much they nailed me for to fix that. I never would have even had them look at it if I knew it was the clutch that was screwed up.
