Hi Guys

Just looking for some sound advice on the following situation, please give a detailed response if possible with a good explanation of why.

I'm about to give my FG XR8 Boss 290 a top end freshen up (high km's engine in good condition) by a top motorsport engine builder.

Parts already installed on vehicle
Herrod Cold Air Box
Bosch Iridium Plugs
K&N Oil & Air Filters

Parts ready for Install
Pacemaker Ceramic Coated Headers
Full Exhaust - Pacemaker V8 Ute Race Spec
Melling Oil Pump
Ford Racing Timing Chain Kit

What other parts do replace at this stage?
Underdrive kit? which one? Part #?
Worth Pulling the heads and honing the bores?
Do i up the compression? I only drive 98 Octane
Cylinder Head Porting required?
Intake Manifold porting required?
Helix spacer?
Valves / Springs / Retainers / Cams, any good value mods available
Injector Upgrade / Cleaning?
Who can tune this beast in Melbourne?

Thanks in advance guys

Cheers Matt
