    Heads??

    So I just order my first run if parts this is what I have so far: Intake grate, Modified R&D plate, VF3 reeds, EFI , PPK, Riva Race spark arrestor (with filter cover) Solas Dynafly Impeller YG-DF 14/20 and a PET 2100 (allready have my GPS) and the d-plate

    So my question is what heads should I run?? I talked to lowell and he says $170 to mill the stockers or I can order rivas for about what $500? Is there any major advantage the the riva (or other aftermaket heads) vs having the stock heads milled? thanks for the help guys, can wait to see some real #'s finally!

    you should be fine with the regular bolts through the head, no need to buy 115 dollar bolts for the outer edges.

    Riva will recommend you to fly to mars and back if they think it will make them more money and they will have you convinced that you need to do so. They may even still suggest you use a powercore also instead of a D-plate.

    There is nothing wrong with using those bolts,-----just hate to see you spend all that money when you don't have to. Just torque each one to the correct specs and check it often.

    Only trying to help.
