Considering that I'm still running a stock throttle body with virtually no head work (other than gasket matching the exhaust ports) I'm pretty satisfied with the numbers.

As for more... for what I have into it I don't think I could get much more. Boring it out would mean custom pistons and if I was going with custom pistons... well I could list a whole bunch of other things I'd probably do that would jack up the cost of the build 100%.

If I had to do it again would I do it differently? Probably, but that’s because I’ve already done it this way once, so I’d likely want to try something different the next time around.

When it comes to projects like the important thing is to establish from the get go what your goals are with regards to power, reliability, aesthetics, etc…, and then establish what you can realistically afford to spend in trying to achieve those goals. If you go back to my original post I laid out what my goals were for the project. I was able to achieve those goals (and the project cost me roughly what I thought it would end up costing) so for me it was worth it.
