Anyone used them?

I have a BAS dual silencer exhaust so a bit different as there's no heat exchangers.
That aside, it's the best quality system that I've ever fitted. Being stainless too means it'll last a lifetime.

Port the stock heads and you are on the money with that choice.

port heads and match inlet manifolds, 3 angle valve seat cut. poss flycut the heads to bump the c/r up. cam and valve springs. 8 dowl the flywheel/crank.
if it's going to be used hard on the road then i would fit a deep sump and prob a windage tray in the case as oil surge while cornering can be a real engine killer.
Doubt you will need a extra cooler on a road car but full flow is a must so you can fit a proper oil filter. A stock size oil pump will be more than up to the task.
If you really want to go for it with stock compents , polish the rods once they all wiegh the same, match the weights of the pistons.
you need to match all the parts , no point in fitting a cam that lifts to .500" if the heads run out of flow at .450" lift. same with carbs and exhaust, i see it all the time. carbs and exhaust far to big for the engine.
