Super ETA's came in 1988, it was a 2.7 bottom end, with 2.5 head...It had a few specific parts like the ECU and some others...Also has 6K redline...Not an eta, not quite an "i"...

^^ yes it is time since there is no more upkeep on that m20 than any other. :P The Supre Eta head is not QUITE an "i" head; still has single valve springs, other difference.

But Super Etas are famous since you can plunk an "i" head onto it and "i" ECU and you've got a 2.7 litre "i" motor.

So if i do put the "i" head with the ECU and everything else on a supereta block, how much power would i get ?
