hello gentlemen

has anyone put in hard seats in a E7te 5.0 head for a 1.6 dia valve? If so what size did you use? I would like to use a 1.4 throat cut - I dont know if we can put a 1.656 dia seat in without hitting water. I also like to sink my exhaust valves a little deeper too.

thanks
Jim

well....I am just going to have to sacrifice a head and see. I have a E6 that I can expiriment on - that has the same port and water jacket. I am thinking if I shallow up on the cbore - maybe or just use a .187 seat instead of the .218 - I probably will be OK.
