Re: Head Work

     What about extude hone for the intake, head, and exhust.? I 
would not go big valves unless you want to lose low end power for 
high end speed. Somthing about cyclinder head velocities or 
whatever... I think extrude hone will be the best thing to do to 
the head and manifolds for a few reasons. One being that the 
prosess removes material from the entire runner not just the ends 
where you can get a grinder. It smooths the material in a flow 
pattern much like water erodes a river bank in a natural efecient 
manner. So more POWER and more MPG all at the same time. But leave 
the turbo alone. Again the high end thing.
