Can I, or will shaving the heads and polishing the heads make much of a diff to my x2 '92 Excel?

Well im gonna kinda go on a stretch here, but i assume you mean actually shaving the entire head, not just porting and polishing. What that does is raise the compression of a motor by making the cumbustion chamber smaller. You will see gains by this process, i couldn't begin to guess how much, but its definetly there. Porting the head will allow for better flow, meaning HP. IF your gonna stay NA, then thats definetly the way to go, a bit ballsy, but you wanna smoke hondas, don't you.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

For the cost of shaving the head, drop a 4g63 in.

Honestly, if you want to raise compression, i'd just buy new pistons tho (since its cheaper...).

How much would it cost to shave the head?

How much would the 46g3 cost and what kind of power diff do you suppose the swap would make? Isn't there a 46g3turbo? if so, I'd go that instead.

Yes there is a turbo motor, the one out of a turbo eclipse/talon/laser. Those motors produce upwards of 220hp in stock trim, and 400hp is not hard.

You can pick a 4g63t up used for about $1200 the installation should run around $500+

There are a few other things you may have to do to complete the job but you will get more power out of the swap then just turboing your stock motor and over all it should be a lil bit cheaper.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Well, its really quite simple, DSM knows how to make motors. The 1st gen exclipses actually had better flowing heads and intake manifolds then the 2nd gen, so you don't really have to mess with that, or just do a simple sawp, it cheaper then getting the heads ported. Upgrade to a T3 turbo, a front mount 3 core intercooler, FMU, and all the other easy stuff.

My friend has a 2nd gen exclipse that has over 400hp but he's running on race fuel. The only thing is he hasn't done any internal work, like head porting. You could easlily make up for the race fuel by doing a good port/polish job. Turbo motors are easy, just crank the boost.
