Hi I have a 95 Talon with a 98 GSX engine that I purchased which is in pieces. So I have decided to do a total overhaul on the engine. My goal is in the 400-500hp range. I started talking with some people who said that they have experience with the 4g63. I was told the best approach would be to do a 6 bolt swap. I started to do some research and talked with others about my plan. I was informed that all i would have to do is swap out the crank shaft and clutch pressure plate, fly wheel, and of course the head. Here is were I was thrown into utter confusion. I was informed that the 6 bolt head would bolt right up with a 7 bolt block, then I was told that the head would have to be machined to enlarge the holes for the head studs. So, I have been thrown back and forth trying to figure this out. Do I need a 6bolt head or would the 7 bolt head I have do just fine. I need someone to set me straight. HELP ME ###.
