A decent set of extractors and either:

1x 2.5" exhaust or
2x 2" exhaust

Re: 4.1 Crossflow Need Power

all cam manufacturers will make acam for it.go for a cam dynamics or powermax.not to deer.change the lifters as well seeing as though you would have to pull them out or at least lift them up to change the cam.dont get too much overlap cos oversquare engines dont like it.just ask for a stage 2
