Cool Re: what can i expect to make(single cam)

Not trying to be an asshole, but why are you using a thicker headgasket if you are going all motor? That is usualy used for turbo setups.

stock ones are 3 layer. 2 layer is thinner.

as for your single cam build, you will prolly be in the mid to high 15's.

Also, you can find full swaps for less than 800 bucks. Josh did his swap for less than 600
