    wussup all? I've asked this question to some people but i wanted everybody's opinion on the subject. I'm building an lsvtec engine right now and was wondering if a valve job is ABSOLUTELY necessary? i keep getting "it's not necessary, but it would'nt hurt," responses. I was planning on doing a PnP job to it as well, but i rather pay off my car first, then do it. I'm under the impression that if your block and head is koo, then I dont have to worry about it. although, i'm going to bring it to a mechanic soon to see if everything is koo. If the valve job isnt necessary, i wont do it. any suggestions i get would be greatly appreciated, thanx in advance!

    the 5 angle valve job will make them wear out quicker i've heard.
