If your doing a race car keep the 2.5 head , change timing cover to a 2.3 , use a 2.0 or 2.3 balancer , get the massive speed VCT elim kit and adjust gears

I just got a 2.3 head for my car. I know it will bolt on to my 2.0 and I was wondering do I have to get the ECU tuned or will it run with factory setup. Also will I have to use the 2.3 intake

Yes, get it tuned properly.
Yes, use the 23 intake. ( I think the Escape manifold is what everyone suggests? )
