Re: 6cylinder Performance Rebuilds (VIC)
like John_xr6 said, that's the best path to go and use the AU headgasket (this way you don't have to skim the head, just in case you want to go turbo later). ACL is quite good but pay special attention to the crank and caps, make sure they get bananced properly as the I6 has inherent balancing problesm over 5.000 rpm. Don't go crazy with the head porting, it's quite thin in places and inexperienced shops can hit water, or it will crack soon after, i say just clean up the ports and port match the intake and exhaust to the head. It's cheap to get the bigger intake valves from an XR and change the springs
