    When I find the D16y8 head should I get it p&p'd? How about the Intake manifold? How much does it cost to get this p&p'd? Any info would be great. Thanks

    go for it.

    i've heard anywhere from free -- 1000 dollars depending on who ports your head. the machine shops around here want around 500 to port the head and do a 3/5 valve job
