I'm curious is it possible to misalighn a pedestal mounted rocker arm? My car isn't breathing right at all. And I have a pretty pronounced valve train noise from a lot of my rockers. If I pull the covers again what should I look for? On cold starts the valve train is noisy and exhaust is a loud puffing noise, no miss just noisy and a major hesitation/lack of power.
This started after doing a lower intake gasket.
Ps there's no coolant that goes through the intake manifolds
Any testing tips would be great instead of saying go to a mechanic. I'm here cause I would Love to fix it on my own over paying a 100 dollar diagnosis (which I've done 2 times to hear them say "we don't know!") Its not worth it.
