      Gonzo didn't rip you off and I'd be willing to bet you have a hardware issue. 99% of the time it is. Keep in mind GTS is a small business and can get very busy. He's not ripping you off. Side note:...

      You can do that but you really need a vacuum source to help remove the crankcase gasses etc. So you should run the catch can to the TIP for a vacuum source. Keep the billet valve as well

      Check the locations he^ said or just pay a local shop to do a pressure test. Shouldn't be more than a half hour of labor. Unless it ends up as needing a leak down test because they cant find any...

      At this point I would consider replacing the chain and I think you can do so without anymore work. I would rotate the engine top dead center and make sure all the timing marks line up. The cams may...

      Ditch the corrosive methanol and start running denatured alcohol you can buy at the hardware store. The "green" kind is even better.
