If your going to rebuild it do some porting to the head.
If your keen you might want to get ITS Performance to rebuild it with a stage 3 or 4 kit.
It would be worth while rather than rebuilding a stock motor again.
If only they were over in Perth. Thats what I'd do.

Like I said, check out the ITS Performance thread in the 6 cyl forum.
The builds and their prices are all listed, including contact details for the guy who does it.

I'd like to keep the same engine. Means getting someone to take it out then ship it, wait for 3 weeks then get someone to put it back in.

I got a V8 now so its less likely to happen for the 6.
