The best and cheapest way to get it up, is to find a "cross-flow" head! (carb on one side, exhaust on the other) from the salvage yard. Have it ported, polished, and flowed, and if you can find some 1.9 and 1.6 British Leyland valves, you will get another 40 HP out of it. The heads were installed on many Lotus's, English Fords, early TVR's (60-69), and if you can find a good salvage guy he can help with his books. Good luck!
