jugglethese Im gonna start looking into finding a head now that the bolt ons are are out of the way. should be able to buy cams before the end of the month as long as nothing major happens. Should i get the head shaved down? i read somewhere that the 23 head is a higher than the 20? which would decrees my compression which would lower power gains?
Sorry for asking alot of questions guys, i just need some knowledgeable people to let me know what i should do for it to be rite the first time. :)

1turbofocus You cannot port the 2.0 to get the flow of the 2.3 head and keep the cost worth doing

Why do that, when you can throw 23 head on.

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.
For a intake manifold get the 23 escape one= doesn't have the imrc aka tumble flaps. A 23 head w/ a set of crane stage 1's work great for a DD.
