You cannot port the 2.3 to the size of the stock 2.5 head only the 2.5 cams will fit in the 2.5 head

I plan on using the 2.5 cams on mine. As far as the intake ports if the knockoff doesn't match up I'll just make a manifold that matches the ports.
Hey Mark, did you ever find out if the valves are the same? I don't have any to compare them to.

Surprisingly they are the same.

OK, at the moment at least it looks like I'm not going to use a 2.5 head for my next build.
I really want to keep it simple and just get the new motor together and be done with it, without adding complications.
If anyone is interested in this 2.5 head let me know.

I put it in the Duratec for sale area for $125 shipped with cams and $100 shipped without.
I do still have the spare set of pistons, but Hughesy27 was also interested in them.

I was gonna get them on the 10th but I know you're in more of a need than I am. If you want them go ahead because you are in the middle of your build. If not, Mark, I'll pick them up on the 10th if that works.
