    dont bother with quads if your only using a piggy back,
    2 1/4 would be better for the exhaust.
    using it for daily? weekend?

    IMO

    build motor with slightly higher comp, stock HG, all new parts and good quality ones (dont just got the standard ACL crap use king or someone a bit better), some nice streetable duration cams and most importantly build it WELL, with good even tolerances all round.

    should be reliable and fun motor, bore the block if you wish i'd prefer higher comp....

    to compensate for the increase in combustion chamber size.

    although higher comp is what u want tho

    Well, if you wanted to save some money you could use a standard block and pistons that were OK, rather than doing the overbore. Also, if the crank ballance is going to cost heaps, don't bother.

    It just depends how much $$ you have. I hate to see 20 year olds without a car to drive because they aimed for a better motor they have the knowhow or $ to build.
