Yup - the non-crossflow head is a dead end no matter what material it is made 

The crossflow head could easily be modified for port injection, but there is 
no market out there to fund that sort of playing about.

The number of people willing to actually pull out their wallets and pony up 
for stuff like that is vanishingly small, and rightly so if you think about 
it - what the hell are you going to do with it - drive it on the street (it 
sure ain't race legal) and get blown away, albeit by a bit less of a margin 
than with a stock engine, by the latest German or Japanese pocket rocket.

The Moss move to convert a California model to injection and keep it legal 
may sell a few units, but I have to wonder if you owned such a car whether 
you wouldn't be better off to just keep the stock set-up working properly; 
you certainly wouldn't be doing the mod for power, when you could get far and 
away more power from the earlier cars.
