If youíre interested, I have a rather nice ported head thatís now available. Originally from a 132, itís had the inlets opened to 43mm and has had a proper porting job done that would be very good if youíre running 45s. It was built for a monte some time ago but spent more recent years on a grass track racer. The cams are reprofiled but I canít give you an accurate spec and anyway I think you have your own cams in mind.  Iíve removed 2 of the valves, for inspection purposes only, but theyíre all nice and straight and the pressure test was spot on.  Just let me know if this is any good to you otherwise Iíll put it on eBay shortly.

Demon Tweeks seem to do a Ďreasonableí price for Weber 45s, plus your choice of linkage, but jetting will depend on what spec (CR etc) youíve chosen. Have a chat with whoever you choose for the rolling road final setup and they should be able to advise; for info, GCRE always recommend Northampton Motorsport for that bit. Theyíll be my chosen team once my engineís ready... probably late summer.

If you are very pedantic for the right period look you need a nice pair of used refurbished dcoe as modern ones aren't made in Italy.
