my friend blew his valves due to misshift. I have a spare engine from a misshift. can he use the valves that are in my spare?

Can we remove the head without removing the chain cover?

You can switch valves with any GT-S if it's just the intake valves are busted, but if it's the exhaust valves, then you can only swap between 00-02 and 03-05 (different sizes). And yes, you need to remove the timing chain cover to remove the head.

Make sure when you take the valves out of the head that will be going back on the car that you use a flashlight to carefully inspect the valve guides for cracks - sometimes when the valves get bent they crack the guides and the guides will need to be replaced. Also remember that since you are using used valves its a good idea to lap them in to the head.
