Is anyone else familiar with the term "inversion dam"?  I heard or read 
somewhere that the non-turbo motors have a smaller exhaust port area 
than the exhaust manifold port area, to prevent sucking air back into 
the head.

I am contemplating mods to a head for my 4ksq, and I want to get some 
feedback about this.
