    I would build the head too if you're thinking about running up to 20 psi

    There's really nothing in the head that would fail when pushing that much power. I mean, only thing really "exposed to 20psi" would be the valves; and people usually just swap them out for bigger ones or lighter ones(no real change in strength).

    But, with head work, you'd gain some power. One thing to consider though is the head bolts; you don't want those stretching on you.
