Look around for the pi heads and intake from a 1999 to 2004 you will get about 40 to 50 hp gain and they are not much more expensive at all.

So just look for the heads and intake from a 99-04 from a junk yard and have the heads ported and polished? don't I also need the cam for the full swap?

No they put the pi heads and intake in the 99 to 04. They actually put better heads in the 98 over the 97 but then decided to up them again haha

Yeah I've been looking into it a lot. And try to get the Romeo heads over the windsors. Either will work but I heard the Romeos were easier to work with for some reason

Re: Havnt posted in awhile but need help

You can do a PI swap H/C/I if you are going to replace the heads might as well do the other 2! you will gain 50ish rwhp and you wont be dissatisfied.

+1 on the PI heads, get a set have them gone over and install them with the new lower/upper intake and you should see good power gains.
