Im figuring Garth will be the first to dive into the engine. Has anybody with a 2011 really looked at the head much. I'm thinking most of the new power is coming from the head and cams as the bore and stroke are similar to the previous gen 10's.
Has anybody:
Compared headers for exhaust port spacing?
Had the valve cover off to look at head bolt locations?
Compared intake spacing?

I know the new engine is completely redesigned but maybe it's a possibillity.
Maybe cams will swap and be beneficial?:dontknow:

Just thought I'd bring up the idea :thumbsup:

Considering the the 2011 has the cylinder bores offset from the crank centerline by 2mm toward the exhaust port for less piston slap and more power, I seriously doubt that the head would fit on any of the previous models.

yeah head gaskets are totally different so im sorta guessing not and if the cylinders are not matched up you will be SOL, I'm thinking a no on this one but I haven't been inside it yet either.
