So with any luck he can swap the cam, heads and intake as mentioned and get his power back.
After sifting through all the information on this thread I'd have to agree with you Custom10 . Cam , heads , and intake will probably get him where he needs to be without starting from square one . And also the least time consuming and most economical and won't have to pull the engine back out . :-)
