does it need to be decked? if not.. its a waste.. measure it with a feeler guage and machine-ist straight edge...

Check the warp variations in a criss-cross and lengthwise pattern on the head and block... then compare it to spec limit.. if its out of limit, then yes, do it. if not.. its SUPER unneccessary - to mill the head.

if you have no idea what im talking about.... then... sucks for you.

what are your plans for the engine? what specs would you have the Cam ground to? any idea? do you know what the duration and lift do to teh engine, and how they work with and against eachother? its not just a matter of plugging in numbers.. and whallah, a perfect cam is made... you gotta know what your working towards, where you want power, where you need power, and how quickly its gotta get there... i'd hold off on the Cam grind.. unless you know WTF you need to have it ground to, just remember that each change in the lift and duration are going to effect the engine, and you need to know where its going to put your power. A cam grind can make or break your engine... literally, and power wise, in a big way.

bore the runners??? why not just polish them...

really? since when? and how do you have the numbers? where did you get them? how were they calculated? were they compared to the stock cam specs? id really like to know this, cuz nobody on this site has ever posted stock specs or known-working regrind specs for an n/a motor.

i very very highly doubt you have any idea as for cam regrinds and specs and stock specs considering you think you can get 220hp n/a.
maybe after doing a LOT of research you might have a general idea as to this info from comparing it to other specs people have used, but you can't go by specs of cams from other motors. every motor is different and requires different specs for the cams to make power
