So, lost a rocker on cylinder 2, intake side. Luckily, didnt drop a valve, caught it right as it happened. Started as a bad misfire, and upon inspection, noticed the rocker free floating under the cam.
I guess I'm looking for some torque specs, and some advice on what to expect. I have a good understanding of head repairs, but it's my first time with this motor ('10 07K)
Are there any recommendations for brands of valve train components? Going with super tech for the valves springs and retainers, IE for the guides and other parts. But, I'm trying to find a decent set of rockers and HLA's (hydraulic lash adjustors) and not sure if anyone here has any experience-driven recommendations for brands.
The head hasn't shown bad signs of damage yet, but I'm going to check if it's still good once I have it on the work bench. Not sure if I will deck it, and still have to look into +1mm valves. IE has the oversized guides, but I'm not sure if the head has to be milled, or if the guides themselves are thinner to make up for the oversized valves. If the seats have to be milled at a shop, I'm not going for it. 20v and 5 chambers will not be a cheap bill.
While I have it off, I'm most likely going to perform a stage 1 port and polish. This car will stay NA
TLDR broke a rocker, need info on head specs, tolerances and parts.
