Oh that is interesting, no way I would have found that issue! Probably be scratching my head looking at the bottom end.

It would be pretty obvious as soon as you tried to torque the rocker shaft down.I'm wondering why he didn't pick up on it on tear down though,as that one rocker shaft bolt,should of been loose when he started taking it apart

I was hoping he was gonna stick a stroker kit in the 5.7,as i think it would of been a fun car with a little more power.Supposedly the AWD will safely handle 500 rwhp,and that'd make for a fun toy

Probably had a helper to tear down or used power/air tools & didn't have the feel for it.

Edit: Well crap was thinking about it the end tear down.
He should have noticed when he put head back on the 1st check.

Wasn't that the head which remained on the engine at first teardown?
