I will say this though, unless you are needing to already buy a head for your engine the stock one is just fine for the horsepower most any of us will make. Its been proven to not be the limiting factor until past 300hp.

EDIT: Saw your post after I posted this, maybe way past that then LOL.

I have run the magna head just a little I had a 60-1 with a stage 3 .63 hot side as that's what I had been running. changed only the head and it was not useable at all. Spooled up less then 1900 rpms with out it tuned up swapped in the stage 5 .63 I had laying around. We had it on a car with any auto  I knew it would not hold up long but blew the tranny on the first drive out. installed one with a modded valve body. was able to get it tuned running 12psi made that by 2600rpms. Tranny gave out after about100 miles.  My brother and i are going to take it slow and get it right this time.

I can't wait to see how this engine runs when it's all done. I would dare say going from the ported Clearwater head to what I got now 3rd gen Magna at least a 20% increase in power downside is I need to get a new intake manifold with larger Runners to really use it
