    End of rocker bolts in Intake ports

    I was putting the top half of my 408 together tonight and I noticed when I was putting on the valve covers that the ends of the rocker bolt were exposed in the intake ports. The heads are Stage 3 ported from TSP. Should I have put some kind of sealent on the rocker bolts or will it be OK?

    yes, put thread locker or teflon paste. if not, you might get oil sucked through them and have the smoke out the back and some idle issues.
