    i know you will need to buy new head bolts, they are TTY bolts. I think, might have been rene that said that.

    I'd port match the intake for sure. It's a nearly free mod, plus it's pretty easy to do. I noticed an increase in power, although without a before and after number on a chassis dyno it could just be psychological.
