Default 7mgte machine work

Does anyone know from experience what all needs to be done to install a Titan 1.4mm head gasket on a 7ngte. I know to plain the head is there a "too much" point like how much can be taken off and still be ok for 1.4mm and not have to go to 2.0mm.also the biggest question I have is does the block have to be milled or decked or anything besides honed. Please let me know need expert advice.and does anyone know of a good place around des Moines to get it all machined besides Harvey's Cuz its too expensive there

You should have the block decked and if you do bring it with the rear lower timing cover. might as well get it honed and re ring the block and crank micro polished and new bearings if you are going to tear it down that far.

As for a place I would take it to harvey's they've done a lot of work for me and others Supra wise.. So I'd say they are the best when it comes down to it. as for the price.. you gotta pay to play hombre.

Well do I deck the block or just resurface it cause the Guy I talked to said decking it takes it all the way down to the top of the cylinders

if your not going to deck the block, at least check make sure surface is perfect straight.
