[Oh, and what about these valves...[/QUOTE]

Im reading and researching.... should I use 2.25" and 1.88" valves... Knowing the bigger means more air. also know bigger is not always better... if the ultimate plan is to bore out to 496... I just wish i knew how to consider sizing everything together? Cylinder volume > head CC's > runners> Intake> Pistons>

How would I go about learning how to do the math myself to see what would be best? is there formulas or trial and error or just plain ol' experience

Also, Ive heard boring out to 496 is bad idea due to the fact of thin walls?

I just know this is my second build. Fist build of bottom end.. and Im gonna do a great deal of talking to everyone on here and researching and researching some more...... I dont really care to much about my ego of trying to look like I know everything.. Id rather chit chat, listen and learn why.
