Blau does do it, their site says 40mm exhaust valves, not 38, I don't know
which is right. One thing, Blau is either screwing their N/A customers or
short changing their turbo customers. The N/A and turbo heads are both 900
bucks, but a turbo head *SHOULD* have sodium cooled exhaust valves. Last
time I checked they were around 100 bucks each. 500 bucks for the valves and
another 400 for all the other parts and labor???
Seems very fishy, anyone know what's up?
