    Gotta love that my iPhone took the pics of those cracks :D 60x magnification FTW!

    got word back from the machine shop that the head is good to go. I will start ordering parts probably tonight and get everything over to them to assemble.

    As of now i'm leaning towards a set of 256/256 Tomei cams, supertech valve springs, supertech valves, and all the bs to go with it, new tensioner/gasket set/timing belt/etx.

    ordered a set of HKS 256/264 9.0mm lift. Should work out well. Still looking for a deal for valve springs and valves, but they are easy to come by.

    bought valves, valve spring kit, complete upper engine gasket kit, tensioner pulley set and timing belt. That should be about everything needed to get it fired and down to tune.

    Fuck, how do you find parts for an engine that doesn't exist in the states... I never thought about that until you were just talking about sourcing parts out. That's got to be a PITA when you're dealing with Japanese sites and what not

    there are a few brand specific sites I shop, as well as ebay/amazon. If you know the PN of what you need to purchase, it makes it alot easier rather than trying to source it based upon "Nissan Skyline"
