On the blocks, rpm, and rotating assembly- it depends a lot on weight and balance.
The heads you suggested were making peak power at 7,000 rpm, the other was making 588@6500rpm which would make for a 7000rpm or so shift point.

I originally stated a 6500 rpm redline.

OK thanks for your input, looks like this guy makes some good stuff.

Everytime I get looking into combinations, it always looks like it is less expensive, and less involved going up to the GEN 3/4 platform.
