i just got all my bolt ons today and the tuner from tom. i got intake and the catback and header. there's those stage 1 crane cams that seem to be appropriate for this swap.
So if i bought a 2.3 head i should get it shaved down, polish it, throw the stage 1 cams in. im sure i can find a 2.3 intake manifold from a local scrap yard. if not theres some decent priced intake manifolds off ebay.
In my head this seems like it will work, it only makes sense that will the increased flow and cams the engine should preform better. maybe not a massive amount of gain. but im sure theres some power to be made from this. and its a wicked project to pursue.
