Will be DOHC belt driven. The hard bit like 911 heads is the stud pcd and need to siamese them, I'm lucky as the pcd will work, but I will still need to mill aside of each head to siamese them, the cams - timing ??? And crankshaft rotation will be hard and pistons and belts etc etc etc ;D

It's looking good :) as I did not know at the start if the stud pcd was going to be ok, as I have only seen pics of the heads before Its just a "Stab In The Dark'  and I had to ask my good lady :-* if it was ok to buy the head and all I got was "how does one find out what work if one can't find out what doesn't work" ;-)(-;

I'm sure you've thought about this ad you clearly have a plan, but I'll say it anyway. Won't a 5" beam cut make your turning circle non-existant?

I had a 6" narrowed beam on a bug, ;-) I will set it all up before painting and cutting the bars, So I can come back out if needed?
