hi guys, i know the sticky addresses head choice questions, but i couldn't seem to find anything in particular that had reference to my problem, ive just begun a forced induction project, this question is more concerned with the fact that i have just discovered that my current head is cracked, and will need to be replaced, so should i just get a head reconditioned and strengthened to take the boost and just engine wear? im sorry if this post upsets some ppl but just looking for some help.

if people could just tell me what they would do in my situation?

cheers.

i dont think theres a whole lot of choice...
an i6 can handle waaaaay more than 4 pound, but not on the standard ecu.
a reconned head with some porting work would be good...
