Hi all, I'm working on a rebuild of my 3k-c with a few upgrades. I want to put a bigger cam in there, but with that I know that I will need to do a few other things including increased compression, stiffer valve springs, and a better flowing exhaust. As for valve springs I am open to any suggestions as to certain brands or companies to go with. The exhaust I can make myself. I have heard that you can get higher compression with a 3k-b head on the 3k-c block, but I do not know much about this. I like the idea of a new head because that means that I do not need to get mine machined, I am just not sure about the logistics. If I were to get a 3k-b head, would I use a 3k-b head gasket, or one for a 3k-c? Also, does anyone have a suggestion as to where I might get a gasket kit for the whole engine? I haven't been able to find many. Any rebuild advice in general would be nice. Sorry if these seem like silly questions, this is an unfamiliar engine to me, and I'm having troubles finding information and parts for it. I figure there are some pretty knowledgeable people on here and it would be greatly appreciated if some wisdom could be shared. Thanks in advance! Goose
