Do a quick compression test on that hole, and an easy one to get to. They should be real close if the rings are ok.
I'll have to get a compression kit since I dont have one.... What should "normal compression" be ? 150-160 range ?


Any ideas on how I can make my own baffles? I really dont wanna go back to stock valve covers. I really like the look of the elite series.
