Based on what I read on Huw's site *I thought* that as long as I kept a
solid lifter cam with a solid lifter head (or a hydraulic lifter cam on a
hydraulic lifter head) that I could put any head/cam on my 82 Coupe engine.

Anyone know any different?

And is there anything to look out for on what the compression ratio was on
the higher power motor. Basically I'm looking for the cheapie hop up from
putting a turbo cam/head on my engine.
