Here at Mazworx, we can build your cylinder head to your specifications. Utilizing our CNC capabilities and state-of-the-art equipment, you can ensure that the machining process is done properly. If you want a cylinder head that is ready-to-bolt-on, see the specifications section for info. For more understanding of our process, see the additional information section.
Each built head will start with the following:
Hot Tank Cleaning:
Wash your head to get oil and grim off.
Sand Blast Head:
Since these heads can be over 20 years old, they may start corroding. Sand blasting the block will get the corrosion/debris off, bring a uniform satin aluminum color to the head and give it an overall better look.
R/R Oil Port Plugs/Freeze Plugs:
This process includes removing, re-tapping, and reinstall all the oil port plugs. By taking out the oil port plugs, we are better able to clean all the oil galleys. The freeze plugs are also removed and
Nissan sets the last using shims between the valve and rocker. At high rpm or while on the rev limiter, these are known to come out and possible cause damage. The shimless valves are made to get rid of that shim.
Port and Polish:
Stage 3 port is a developed level CNC port. We maximize the ports and seat to obtain the highest flow. We invest hours developing this port using our Superflow 600 flow bench.
CNC 90mm Combustion Chamber:
This process opens up your combustion chamber and removes the squish areas. The squish areas are there for low rpm tumbling of the air fuel mixture, but at high boost, they become a hot spot. This leads to detonation. Plus opening up the chamber deshrouds the valves and allows them to breath better.
The process can be viewed here: Mazworx CNC Combustion Chamber
R/R/R Valve Guides:
This process removes, re-installs, and reams the valve guides. The guides are replaced with Supertech bronze valve guides. For port and polish stages 2 & 3, this process will need to be done.
Upgrade to Multi Angle Valve Job:
In this process, we cut multiple angles in the valve job to help increase flow. With a 90mm chamber, we can add up to 5 angle plus a radius.
1/2" Head Stud Machining:
The head stud holes are drill to fit 1/2" head studs and the dowel pin locations are machined for 16mm dowels.
Resurface your head using a PCD (poly-crystalline diamond) tool.
Replacing your old valve seals with new ones.
Installation of the valve, springs, and retainers.
This process we will set the valve lash to the camshaft's specifications.

If you plan on using this head only for racing, then it's best to get rid of the VVL. We have custom cams made to eliminate the center lobe and grind the outter lobes to spec. By doing this, we can reduce the rocker weight and therefore reduce valve float at high rpm.
If you plan on sending in your head, we will wait for your head to show up before work is started. If you don't have a head and want to purchase a core, then please select the type of head you want. For the VVL heads, we have to purchase a complete motor in order to get the head. So let us know what other parts you want off the motor, so we can send them to you along with the head.
Springs and Retainers:
We use Supertech Dual Valve Springs and Titanium Retainers. Choose which set suites your application.
We recommend Kelford 184-T cams for high RPM turbo applications. For race only engines, we recommend eliminating the VVL lobe. This reduces valvetrain mass and increases oil supply to the bottom end at high rpm.
Machine for Hall Sensor:
If you are using our Hall Effect Sensor Kit, we can machine the head to accept it.
Machine for 1/2" Head Studs:
If you plan on making over 600hp, then we suggest going with 1/2" head studs. In this process we drill out the head for our 1/2" head stud kit. We also re-machine the dowel pin locations for the bigger dowels.
