Inhaling and Exhaling...

[I too would like to make my Type 85 faster. But turboing it is NOT an
option. I have the NG in my CGT and it's compression is far too high to
turbo. So that leaves me SOL for forced induction. Anybody had any luck
extracting more power out of an NG? I'd love to see 175 HP out of it,
but would even be happy with 150. It's stock now, so I guess first steps
will be K&N dropin, exhaust, then get the head ported & polished and
drop in a new cam. Does that sound right? Thoughts on how much HP that
would be?

You can refer to my site :

Although the project is not complete yet, the details are mostly there, and
I reference other similar swaps.

I did not do turbo, because although it is not difficult perhaps, it is not
as straightforward as an NA  swap IMO, which is based partly on my recent
MC work.

Sorry, not much time for further details right now.
