Did they really make ALOT of differents dude cos the 1914 in the bus is on stock valve and is slightly ported..
It just doesn't seem that quick really i was hoping it would be better i think it's also running a stock cam as well how well would a decent set of heads go with a stock cam.....
Would the heads make it rev higher??? i can only rev to 4500 at the mo..


Come on Danny boy help me out.. lol!

better heads with bigger valves would make a huge difference on your engine dude Twisted Evil

as for the cam i would change that aswell as it is very well matched to a set of standard/ mildly ported heads but change the valve size and the flow characteristics will change so the cam will be miss matched with the heads so it will become the reason the engine isnt making full power No

i think that only the cam dictates how high the engine will rev but i might be wrong Suspect
