Does anyone know a local shop that has experience with the SR20 motors.
My head is all done, but since I changed the valve guides and seats were reground I need to have the valve shim clearance measured.

Anyone know a place that can properly set up the valve shim clearance?

I took it to a local machine shop and they're clueless. I'm not sure if I want to start getting the feeler gauges out and leaving it in my own hands.

I know DPR and places down south can do it, but I don't want to ship my head out.

Any help is greatly appreciated, as I'm anxious to get the engine into the car

Thanks,
Frank :D

Because your head is probably stock and I've speant about 30 hours on port matching/polishing. Another 5 hours on the valves cleaning alone.
It's a beautifull piece to look at :D

How do I know that you've kept all the shims/HVLA/rocker arms in the right order? Even if I bought your head I'd still want to go through the same procedure.
Even if you hand lap the valves, you should always check the valve clearance.
That's my take on it, but I might be too anal. I'd rather spend $100 and know that it's right. I've spent too much time and money on this engine to take shortcuts
(ceramic & molebdynum coatings on internals included)
Thanks though.

easy there, I was offering you my head which is still on my de from my 93.5 g20. I havent touched the engine since I've done the swap. I pulled the engine because i dropped in a DET.
