it would be easier to have larger exhaust valves fitted to you head with a mild port job.

The work done to the head would end up cheaper than an XR head.. with more performance.
The extent of the headwork only depends on your budget. You could just get it shaved, and ported&polished.. and probably be under $300. Thats a very rought estimate, but you get the idea... And that would be better than an XR6 head. If you are serious, there's quite a few people that do this stuff for a living (and a hobby).


Cheers
