while I'm doing the headgasket I'm throwning in some mods..

AU metal gasket and bolts
shaved and ported head
regrind cam (not sure specs yet)
new valve guides and reset valves and seals
el electric fans
ea intake tube
k&N pannel filter
MSD SS coil
and I'm wiring up a shift kit

oh and extractors and a 2.5 exhaust

any idea on what sort of gains I should expect? I know it wont be much.
if you can think of anything else I should do while its apart please let me know.

chers

the the EB computer won't support the switch in the BBM and the EL computer won't support the switch of the injectors for LPG. Plus it won't fit with all the LPG stuff.
