Your Head before -

Now after-


I would have milled more to bump your compression. They only did. 006" to be sure it's straight.

Just so everyone knows expert didn't order the wrong head for my car, It was a mistake at the machine shop sending a zetec head rather than a svt from what I heard. Got the vibe that they thought I was blaming them of the mix up. They are a good shop and do great work. I thought after messing up my timing belt job and destroying my valves that my car would never run the same again.They proved me wrong, I picked the svt up monday and the car runs the same if not a little smoother after the head was milled and revalved. They did a great job with rebuilding the mess I had towed to them. I should have just bit the bullet and taken it to them to begin with, timing is no joke and should not be attempted by the inexperienced. Lesson learned haha.

anyway the whole point of this is:

1. Got the car back and runs great.

2. Have professionals install a timing belt rather than spending 5-6 times the amount by doing it wrong or putting it off until its to late and you need extensive head work.

3. Expert automotive in north ridgeville does great work at a reasonable price.
