Cylinder head question

Alright, well hopefully with my tax refunds this year and my clothing allowance I will be buying a cylinder head from you the beginning of next year. So I have a couple questions. I read that you said on a na SVT going with bigger valves isn't that important. On my virtual dyno I got some decent gains ( a couple ponies) by putting larger valves on SVT head. I know that isn't real world at all, but just something I use for a baseline. So could you explain why its not important to go with bigger valves. Also I read were you recomended street port. My car sees alot of open track so do think think there would be gains going to race port or whatever your most aggressive porting is, or is the driveability just going to go to crap. I am not to concerned about driveability on the street as I have driven honda's that have made like 0 horsepower till they reached 7000 rpm's, so that doesn't bother me too much. Basically I would just like to squeeze as much power out as I can. Also I read that you don't recomend very aggressive cams, can you fill me in a little bit more on that. I wanted to go with piper cams most aggressive grind, but you know alot more about this than i do, so maybe you can talk me out of it. I see you have also recomended 3 " exhaust. Right now I have 2.5" borla, would there be gains of switching to a 3" setup, that has always made me curious just because my test pipe is smaller than 3", ( I am pretty sure, but I could be wrong), so it made me curious what kind of gains could be had. LAst but not least, I plan on switch to your vct elimanator, and your tuning, but with those mods would I have to switch to bigger injectors and MAF. I hope not, just because I am on a tight budget.
