the low comp big port head doesn’t flow as well and I think the bottom end on the small port is stronger as well? (not too sure). I just know that the compression is higher (I think due to the head gasket and head design) the head flows way better for 98% of the n/a builds out there and it has oil squirters as well for the botrom end which help. I think there’s one other thing I’m forgetting though. but generally people go turbo/supercharger on the big ports since it’s already low comp and has well, big ports.

maythedownforcebewithyou, itbs sound mean, but s/c is also sweet. driftoffacliff, there aren’t many bolt ons surprisingly. all of the good parts are made for the rhd models. a good exhaust manifold that fits lhd will run you upwards of 1k. No cai really gives power unless you go itbs, then if you want itbs you need a crap ton of other stuff like map conversion, decent cams, blah blah blah. For such a popular car, you’d think it’d have a better aftermarket.
I have no idea what tuning route I want to go for when it comes to the engine. Small port conversion + high comp. Forced induction? so many different ways to go about tuning, and the length of which you want to go. I love forced induction, but do I want that over a higher revving n/a machine? I’m not trying to go crazy with numbers, just something that will give me reliable power and some punch.
