It will work well enough, but if your after every extra kW there's probably more scope for p+p and flow with EF/EL or AU heads. Also dont forget to modify the sump/k frame.

yeah modifying the sump will be a given. I did think ef el au head would be better. But would eb head have as much potential as ef el?? I also have a complete ef engine. Don't know If I want to open it up though. But that might be what I end up doing. Just want help with the decision.

Cheers.

AU head has the potential to flow the most when ported.

According to Autospeed the AU head has the most "potential" flow, where i believe the EB head has somewhat significantly better flow STOCK, but once they had both been ported the AU head was superior

have a read

http://autospeed.com/cms/title_Porting- ... ticle.html

They explain why the AU head is better for porting.
