Looks great, man. How tough is it to work on the left (rear) head while the motor'* in the car?

Also, I don't know if you saw my reply, but I apologize for asking you to measure the ports on those heads. The pros have done their own research, and I'd be low to try and steal the technology from them. Thanks for having a good head on your shoulders.

Hope the install continues to go well. Make sure you keep us completely updated on this project.

willwren - the lower intake is portmatched to the heads from Milzy Motorsports, you get what you pay for!

You are going to love those heads, it will really wake that motor up, and if you ever go turbo or some other power adder your going to soil yourself.

I love the set on my car but as I won't be racing it as much I am putting them on a buddys ride that craves more power.

Enjoy! Those heads rock! Told you he would get your order done and with great quality!

Theres plenty of room to work on the rear head but it'* just a pita because of how far back it is. You really have to get up in your engine bay to get back there. Theres no other way.
Don't worry about asking me for that info. Not a big deal at all.
Updates are comming in a few minutes.
