All that space between the head and manifold is begging to have bungs welded for a reroute pipe. I hate how mine just floats under the manifold.

Yea, mine just king of hangs there now. If I end up routing it above the manifold (which I might for easy access) I'll make some king of brace for it.

The runners are all lined up pretty danr well. There's a small lip inside in some areas but nothing that I shouldn't be able to smooth out with a dremel.

Looks closer matched than i would have thought. Id at least port those overhangs a bit, possibly the whole b6 part of the flange as well.

I'm curious how much more power it would make with a P&P head with larger valves. Too bad you aren't closer you could throw mine on to get some numbers

I see.. if you had to estimate how much would it cost a regular person to buy the parts, and install them. (no shop work unless required)


TIA

Glad to see you got it together, now I want to see numbers (or a plot really).

Looks badass, hope it works well for you.
