I'll buy your N/A head.....Is the head in good shape? I have seen a few heads but all have corroded away in the water vallys near the valves. Mines garbage unless I get it welded up.

got a pic from the CNC place of the vacuum manifold after anodizing. mine will have supra engraved on the front. if there's any interest in them, a group buy of 10 people would get the price to around $55-60 with anodizing.

Alex, I can say this from the bottom of what's left of my heart, you will love it. The G's and the torque you feel is simply unreal. Build it right it should not not break.."knock on wood". But this has cost me a clutch and a gear so far..lol..

I just used a 2mil on this last engine and is fine. Don't really notice the loss of bottom end power and 60-1 seems to spool fine though not till around 3200ish. But my other car is pretty laggy so I guess anything feels good compared to that..lol..
