Not sure what you mean. I noticed a big difference in both low rpm and (esp.) upper rpm performance. I haven't dyno'd it or anything but do plan on it in the near future. I definitely feel it was worth all the effort!

Dbl posting? Is it allowed here?

I'm in the middle of this swap as well onto my ZX2.

My question: Do the ports line up for you focus guys or do you have to port the stock head out to take advantage of the larger runner openings on the SVT manifold?

The stock zx2 manifold ports are aprox. 27MM X 44MM while the SVT is 33MM X 46MM. The SVT comes in at a slightly higher angle and is approx 2mm high for the "floor" of the ports. I removed the metal inserts in the flange and mounted it to the head and the floor lined up nearly perfectly. I'm currently in the process of porting everything so it matches.

I'm waiting on a valve spring compressor that I ordered from the MAC tool guy at work. I'm getting oversize valves and all that stuff but figured I'd start on it. I have around 2 hrs on the 1 intake port and 3 hrs on the 1 exhaust port. Exhaust port is opened to 1.5" to match my header... This is my first time doing this stuff and just using it as a learning experience. If it all works out great, awesome, if not, Fffffff Uuuuuuuuuu and a waste of money HAHA.


Scribed showing material that needs removed...




Mount inserts removed, picture down runner showing what needs to be removed and that the floor is nearly perfect. After removing the slight hump just inside and the texture, it lines up great.




Nearly done:




Much larger looking now:
