I wanted to look up the horsepower gains for the MSX crossflow heads, 
but the page at no longer exists.  Does 
anyone know the new address?
        As for getting the "same results" from a crossflow head as from a 
supercharger, can anyone verify this?  My impression was that you had 
to make several other changes to take advantage of the different 
head, such as headers, new pistons, etc.  The old numbers from Steve 
Darby's MSX homepage only showed gains of about 3-5 hp when the 
crossflow head was added to an otherwise stock engine.  Also, even 
when the head was added to a heavily-modified engine, the 
significant horsepower increases were above 5000 rpm.  This is VERY 
different from the performance gains one usually gets from adding a 
supercharger, the hallmark of which is increased low-end torque and
