Just wondered if others experienced similiar problems and if there was a solutions.

Thanks techinspector on the article on getting the intake machined..

Sounds like the problem is more of the heads than the intake......

Since you're contemplating an intake purchase, may I suggest that you ebay the scrap aluminum that you have and buy something else from a reputable manufacturer? Even if they're cast iron, Dart, World Products or even Summit stuff you likely gain horsepower and have no more problems. I know this isn't what you want to hear but the fact is that you'll spend more to correct this situation than it would cost to just eliminate it altogether.
