Nice to see someone putting a 2.3 head on and moding it. Plus a I/M

I think there are two PNs: 1s7g and 3s4g.

According to SBD, the 3s4g is the one with better flow. I have one 3s4g, just want to know if it's same as 2.3.
I looked up my part # when I first got the head to make sure I got the better flowing one also and my part # was the 3s4g so you should be good

I'll do my best on getting as many pics as possible I'm usually the kind of guy to just work on something to get it done but ill work on taking pics through the process this time lol. Also I wont be working on it probably till spring when I could let it sit while working on it (since it is my DD) and drive either my other car I just picked up or my motorcycle. I do plan on having it done for FF 13' and plan on having both of my cars there.

Not really an update but I'm waiting on Massive for my correct cams, Crower sent them Stage 1 cams not Stage 2's that I ordered but Massive is getting everything taken care of. Then all that is left really is the valve springs & retainers then on to the machine work for the head for the bigger valves, decking and a little polishing, maybe a mild port not sure yet since its only going to be N/A with a stock bottom end not to sure if the porting would help or hurt it since its not FI or high compression. And since I have my 02 ZX3 now I have no plans of going FI anymore as this is going to stay my DD, and this is probably all I will be doing to it performance wise for a while.

When I have any updates I'll make sure to post them until then here is my parts that im piling up, you may notice a few extra parts, I have the parts for a SVT rear brake conversion and I bought a replacement grille to do the badge delete mod and the Braille battery from the new car.
