I have a dilemma.
I want to port a head and I currently have two (2.0L) to work on.
The first one is a Spica head and the second one is a L Jetronic head.
Besides some visual differences does one flow better or is a better candidate for porting???
The head will go on a 1987 2.0L engine with L jetronic. I realize that I will have to carve out the injector cutouts on the Spica head if I use that one.
One curious fact is the Spica head is a much nicer casting than the later head.
Help me choose a head...

I would use the Bosch head for the L-Jetronic since you'll use it on a 1987 engine. My 1986 2.0L head had a crack, I bought one from someone on this BB. Without a rebuild-able core, it would have cost me an extra $750 from IAP, and Centerline won't have any exchange heads for awhile.
