    I have a ported b16a head. Pretty radically done for a naturally aspirated car. The motor it was on made 220whp. I also have a B18c block that i was gonna build to go turbo for my street car. Physically I know it will work, but has anyone done this? I have never buillt a turbo motor, and dont know what kind of things make and lose power. Am I better off with a stock head? I dont have the flow numbers anymore. But it flowed well at larger valve lift.
    Thanks in advance.

    as long as your cams aren't high duration, and you can feed it enough fuel, and spark, it will be bad ass.
    my head is completely done by portflow

    hey pissed, does tom fujita still run the NA rex?? I haven't heard his name in a while. I am assuming that you might have spoken with him at portflow.
