Do you have experience with the crossflow head?  A while back I was looking
at the Sportcars International (Steve Darby's) website.  He had some dyno
runs done on 3 MGB motors in varying stages of tune.  For a stock motor, it
seemed that the crossflow head resulted in a lot less power down low, and
really insignificant gains on the very high end with a stock motor.  It
wasn't until the motor was really breathed on (3/4 race cam, very high
compression ratio, and BIG carbs) that the head did much of anything, and
that was still at very high revs.  Didn't seem like a good choice for a
street car.  

Any comments?
