Have the heads modified for dual plugs while it's apart.
You won't regret it.
It's the best bang for the buck mod you can do, even on a stock build.

Not yet. I've decided to bring it back to stock crank, rods, etc. and get rid of the stroker. Reasoning; easier to work on, easier on the trans. Hopefully inside the case is ok, but i should know soon.
