Most Flowing Head - EF
Strongest Crank - AU
Rods - ED

Bugger the vct engine. itll be a bastard to set up then when you do you have fewer choices for aftermarket cams.

I thought all the blocks eb->el were the same.

the best flowing e-series head is the eb xr6

crank strenght isnt really an issue (has anyone broken a i6 crank?). EF/EL have more counterweights than others.

Best rod/piston combo would be the AUs due to the extra rod length.
