    I wanting to do the swap and to get the job done the right way while im doing it. I was wondering if anyone would like to share there knowledge with me. I want to get them ported and polished I also wanna put some aftermarket cams in. I plan on adding nitrous at the same time and top it off with a tune. Any suggestions for where to get my heads? should I even get my heads p&p. how about cams? I do plan on getting a stall. Sorry I got so many questions. Theres just so many diffrent choices to make when it comes to doing the swap :-\

    Getting everything done right the first time is a good idea! I did the swap with stock parts and it was great but found myself adding ported heads and cams just a year later.
    You can get a complete PI swap kit with P&P'd heads and better cams from www.steenracing.com they have complete stock PI kits with all the upgrades you want. Give them a call and tell them what you want to do.

    How much power are you shooting for?

    NA or blower?
    You wanna do cams too?

    ive talked to the guys at VT before about cams with a port job on my heads. they said that their stage 2 na cams love the spray. thats one of my next projects for my car. but with anything above a stage 1 youll need different springs and valves.

    I love cam lope too. Love the sound of mine. :D

    Yes you can, once you pick a cam supplier, they will recommend a grind for your set up.

    For the nitrous, check these guys out:
