I'm running built bottom and stock head and am running 20psi just fine

Very nice. Pretty much what I would like to be at. I'm looking at picking up a spare motor soon and building it on the side because this is my dd. It's good to see that the stock top end can handle that much.
I think I still want to do some work to the head or find a 2.3. More flow, more power.

More money, yes. But I plan on building it over time to space it out. Head is the last piece I want to build. Bottom end, clutch, lsd are what I'm doing first. And besides, almost everyone on here knows you have to pay to play.

The 23 head flows awesome, if anything add a set of ss valve's & of course your springs to go w/ the cams. Its not like a zetec head.

Should be getting some parts together starting end of next month. I'll be starting a build thread shortly after that. Kind of tossing around some power goals right now. I'm getting a t3 manifold so looking into some options there. If I'm building up the motor why not beef up the turbo?

Do have a question about which 2.3 head to use. Can I use the fusion 2.3 head or is that the same as the ranger where it's the same as the 2.0 ?
