I thought you were bulking up. Wasn't that the point of making more power?

Awesome cant wait to see this finished. It looks like you could possibly run the reroute over the intake runners like ive seen someone else on here do(sav?).

There is no head work and I don't trust myself to diy. Before I invest in head work I'll build a 1.8.

I guess I could do that. Perhaps if I ever come across a cheap/ free head I'll try it. But honestly 300 whp is plenty.

yeah! i am thinking about doing the same thing you did! building the block some and have a stock head. i just ordered my turbo. by doing the porting thing you would prolly gain a lot with that much flow. prolly like 10hp or something
