Why do you want d-shaped exhaust ports?

Looks like you got some nice hardware, hurry up and get that sucker done so you can get it tuned and to the track when its nice and cool. You will probably have to play with different spark plugs, clubgp should be able to help you. Any estimates on power output?

we also did 1.84" intake valves on your heads, which i think i will make standard on the stage 2 L36 heads.

glad you like the heads Mike, can't wait to hear your results from them.

Sorry. I tired being barefoot for a little bit but it was alot harder outside. I'd climb out of my engine bay and step on all kinds of stuff.
Thanks, i'm suuuper happy.

Oh yeah i for got to mention NO lifter clatter anymore! Those low mile L32 lifters did the trick.
