SUBARU GURUS WANTED!@!@

Recommended Posts

Hey There, I'm currently in the middle of rebuilding my 2001 subaru wrx wagon i had recently bought a semi closed v8 sti block with forged internals. the block has been zero decked and it came with existing subaru legacy heads. after pulling the heads off i found that the valves had made contact with the pistons and had left some notches in the piston head. im afraid when i apply my wrx heads to the motor that the valves are going to collide with the pistons. what is a way i can get around this? i dont think there is enough clearance with just a factory gasket and im trying to avoid machining the heads entirely any ideas would be great

What machine of the heads are you referring too?

 

looks like you need the pistons machined to have valve pockets for clearance.
generally you want a gap of 1-2mm around and under the valve face to get good flow and allow for any thermal expansion. 
 

where about are you located?
