Looks awesome! What kind of power are you after? The head looks like it should move some air. :-)

What buckets/lifters do you have? Im always listening for info on what can be used to replace the hydraulic ones. When I was running 16v I always had problems with the hydraulic ones and also with floating valves due to weak springs or sticky valves. Both caused misfire issues.
