I ported and polished one of these heads and put it on the 4ksq.  Made a
HUGE difference in power.  Car was a 10.5 0-60 car before.  Now it is a low
9 second car.  The biggest gain is mid range though.  I believe that head I
got came off a 200 from 89.  If memory serves me right, was an NF code head.
I know someone on the net has a list of engine codes for each model.  Will c
if I can find the link...
