slightly higher compression ratio can be beneficial.. try using premium fuel with that combo though.. :wink:

How did the porting go? Don't forget to remove the sharp edge around the combustion chamber, helps stop it pinging.

I use a BMW spark lead tool. Its like a pair of pliers with a hole that has teeth, anyway, they are very tough to remove. Use a socket, about 12mm, in 3/8" drive (12 point) to fit new ones.
How much was the cam?

You'll have to put a chemical flush through the system when you get it back together, lookin at the corossion in it. I use Loctite brand, 15 min stuff.

Im in much the same kinda pickle.

I have me tickford head that im swapping over for my stock one, im going to get it decked just so its got a nice clean surface to go down on. That and an AU gasket should go a treat.

The AU headgasket is made of metal shims,(like diesel h'gasket), unlike previous gaskets, that were composition gaskets.
