No recall, GM doesn't care. They deny everything.

I don't buy any of the fancy guide stuff.

CHE has been manufacturing valve train components for over 30 years and manufactures precision valve guides for all applications of racing. CHE has NOT had problems with excessive valve guide wear in ANY application the guides are being properly used in.

The following situations can cause improper wear:

1. The valve manufacturers do not micro polish and coat the valve stems. Several manufacturers have had problems with their stems not being micro polished correctly, and then put a CRN coating on them. If the valve stem is rough and is then coated, the valve stem will act like a file, and it will destroy any manufactured guide in a short time.
2. If the valve train geometry is not checked when putting in a larger cam, it can cause extensive valve guide clearance in a short period of time.
3. Improper initial guide clearance from the start can also cause the guide to wear out prematurely.
Should you have any questions regarding our valve train components, we are more than happy to answer via email or phone at 805-499-8885.

The guides in my own heads are che guides and are toast in short order 10k miles with full roller setup an valve train geometry was checked. still out of spec. not saying the guide is at fault. but when an oil change almost out last the guides in the heads theirs a problem

I've always been skeptical of offset rockers in true wedge design heads. Wonder if GM decided to slightly cant the new LT stuff to thwart this ugliness ????

A little over 9 minutes in, they use the LS7 engine, they show a little bit on how they
make the intake manifold runners, which I thought was pretty interesting.

Very nice, my C5Z was at about 94KPA up top too with the ported MSD 102, and NW 102 TB.

Looking forward to your results with the intake porting.

Nice.

Should be in Lakeland mid Feb. I'll let you know.

If I was going to do an intake on my car ever, would probably be that with a low profile elbow.
