so not a "bolt-on", but a cut and clamp / minor fab. Headers are not a bolt on either, AFAIK all require cut and clamp to OEM system. All require special pipes from the header to whatever...

why does one seat have a scratch and the other has a few dings from the grinder collet? A scratch is a perfect place for the seat to start burning away.

modern powder seats are super strong. IMO this is all caused by valve bounce.

IMO most failure is caused by bounce. Even a twin spring has harmonics that lead to very low spring pressure. Hence the evolution to a conical spring, as it tends to absorb the harmonic within the...
