Might use an au head. More options are open for them such as cams ect. And for the better flow capabilities once ported and cleaned up.

What's a decent cam that'll give decent power with mild tune? Or one that doesn't neccessarily need a tune but is noticeable?

ive got a vct engine in my ed, it was hooked up to a rpm switch to switch at 3000rpm and made a nice improvement, nothing earth shattering but a nice overall gain..

im now still running the vct head but the vct gear has been removed and im now running a vernia gear with a wade non vct cam..

Would I be better off with the tickford head off an eb or an ef el tickford head. Or no real difference in the two?
