Good to know^^^^^


felixthecat, for the crane 0012, do we need upgraded valve springs?
Yes, you'll need springs/retainers. I'd love to try those cams.^^^^^^^

So i need some help does the cast number matter and do i order a head with vvt? And does any body know what.the stock compression ratio is for my 2011 2.0? And one last question when i get the 2.3 head after i get some feedback on what matters and what options to get then i am going to send the.head to machine shop to mill how much do i take off to raise the compression ratio to where i dont hit piston and with spray dont unload the bottom end? And as for cams i have heard alot about the crane 224-0010 i am planning to do aftermarket cams on the 2.3 head these 224-0010 still the way to go? If i can go bigger will it effect hp/tq? Just looking fir the right cams for my set up so any input will be great thanx...
I like where your minds at! I have been wanting to do the same thing. Let me know how it goes
