    2g head on a 1g. all you have to do is drill out the holes a bit right? I have 2 1g heads and have been considering selling the built 1g one for a 2g one

    That's correct...and drill out your 2 outside exhaust manifold holes to 10mm

    Or run a big boy thing called a tubular header :-) Yeh, my original head had the 6 bolt studs POUNDED THROUGH the old holes by those wonderful Army Mechanics that owned it. A 12mm Drill bit is best, but I think mine are 1/2" and still works fine.

    I am trying to get a quote on a small shop or big 2 car garage so I can really work when I want and call it a day when I want instead of when the weather is cooperating. Going to a shop auction tomorrow to check out their 2 post lifts, tire machine and anything else that might go for a reasonable price since it is all old. Crossing fingers.

    You just had to throw in that you're running the beefier head studs to make us look bad didn't you?
