Hey all, I bent 3 intake valves on my 2001 V6 B5 after replacing the CCT. I had a guy who works at a machine shop replace just those valves, and the seals and lifters. Put it back together, timed properly (at least well enough to not bend more valves), and did TBA. The car did start but flashing CEL and cyl 3 misfires. I left it alone during winter and now, a few months later I discovered no compression on cyl 3. Here's the weird part. When I take the cam off and use an air compressor, I get compression. Is there anything he may have missed? I've read about the lifters hyper-extending, and now found this video about it. I'd appreciate any help.
