    Or a time machine, although this might not be the best way to use it.

    I'd like to get my hands on a Ken Miles modded cylinder head. Even if I dont have an engine to fit it to.

    That is about what I payed for my roll bar.

    I wonder what ken did other than porting and flowing.
    There was a list of mods Doane Spencer used to offer via HSC .. His ultimate spec was a 1592 with an advertised 130bhp on zeniths presumably given the regs...
    That would be an achievement especially as they had to use stock valve size
