Just because the IM is Cossie made, doesn't mean it doesn't need a little cleanup of the surfaces as well as porting the intake runners to make sure they better match the head. Later on down the road when I'm ready to get cams, I'll probably pickup another 2.3 head from the junkyard, rebuild it with fresh cams/springs/retainers and probably have a P/P job done on it before I install it. I think that will be a better way to do it so that I don't have to leave the car non-op for very long.
