It has a 2 part head, the valves, and valvetrain mount on the inner section, while the camshafts mount in the outer section. If you look carefully you can see some damage on the far side of the cam carrier.

Image

The intake valves are 35mm, the intake throat measures 30.8mm, or 88% of the valves diameter.

The exhaust valves are 29mm, the exhaust throat measures 24mm, or 83% of the valves diameter.

This doesn't look good.... not only is the one pair of ports longer, and more oddly shaped(more drag??), but they are narrower as well??? Can't tell for sure until I get this on the bench... but I do not expect equal results...... :(
