    I'd say with a good port job, you'd pick up a minimum of 10hp, but probably closer to 20, based on what I already mentioned in post #17.

    That intake had a little port work done ;)

    Kurts gotta be talking a 77mm...those things are huge aluminum meters but it was the go to meter years ago until the plastic 80mm came out. I'm also not a fan of the lightning meter on anything....

    Cam could go a few ways personally.. comp 35-552-8 I like

    This is the closest one to the one I have. Mine is flanged and has a slightly different sample setup. It was a Pro-M before they went out of business the first time. Then it was PMAS, and I think they are about of business now, and they have started up Pro-M again. I can't keep track.

    I have heard bad things about the Lightning MAF, but I defer to Rick on explaining it because he is more familiar with it. That intake has definitely already been ported.

    I'm sure it'll be good with a little JB Weld ;)
