    There's still afair amount of Power to find yet as the turbo is it's just not workable, CR have sent a new hot side to bill to fix that but there are plans afoot! I'm just going big port head shopping :ninja:

    It kind of makes sense at this point and it is probably the best way to achieve Wellyesque performance that the manifold deserves :ninja:

    humm... looks a bit black doesn't it... I paid 100 quid for mine mate... I'd watch it but look for others... drop the seller a question asking about the mileage...

    I would advise getting the exhaust guides done whatever you end up with...

    yeh, you need to find ones that are auctions so they'll sell for what they're actually worth, rather than someone making up crazy price on a buy it now.

    I baught a brand new head from ebay and it was £100, with new cams and a new tensioner, albeit with no valves.

    Looks good that does Dane!

    I still can't believe that a stock large port will flow better than even a ported small port. feeling rather smug about having a large port on the track car now :)

    Small port definitely feels more punchy low down though with a tiny little turbo like my ko3S on the daily.

    Did you get my PM earlier Dane? or did I imagine sending it?

    Dane have you thought about paying the extra money and getting a rebuilt one from the engine shop in kent, or another engine shop? I think they are around 550 but they build it to your spec (only standard parts) so you can get an AGU/AEB head with all the vvt chain tensioner and other stuff you will need. Im thinking about it for my build as i just found out the AEB head i bought off ebay is f***ed ! plus you get 12 month/12k mile warranty.

    Hmm the warranty is mighty tempting... but then it's a whole lot more aaah! I need to make a desision before this chap sells the engine whole.

    Weigh up your budget and hassle mate. You know you've got the expertise round you with Bill and Tuffty.

    I certainly wouldnt be paying £200 for a head, that will almost certainly need work to make it spot on.

    I've seen AEB heads sell on ebay for £30 in the past.

    Hold out for one on auction at a decent price, and use the money you've saved to have the guides replaced, valves recut and whatnot.
