Thats right, this is the GM Performance Parts Ecotec Race Head
Intake Side of the GMPP Head (look at how massive those ports are
Up Close and Personal with the intake side ports, These are how a port job should look, so clean and shiney.
Exhaust side of the GMPP Head, Definitely bigger ports than the stock head
Exhaust side ports, also so shiney
Heres the end of the head, notice anything different? yep, you guessed it, no EGR ports
this winter the cav is undergoing an enormous change.
the current turbo setup is sold and i am doing a full engine build along with a monster turbo setup with the garrett dual ball bearing gt35r leading the setup. looking to hit that magical 400 whp mark, actually get closer to 500whp for the track.

Future of the car:
The entire turbo setup that is currently on the car is being sold and the man who is buying it is picking it up at the end of this month (September). I am starting a new full engine build and am doing more things to the interior. I am also doing my suspension more thoroughly and am also doing my brakes too. I am looking for that complete car. I want the performance to run 11�s in the quarter and then pull the car over and quick detail it and have it show ready and be able to place. That is my goal with this car.
