Michael - I'm afraid I can't really tell. The old exhaust had had a "temporary"(!!!) repair done at Affordable Mufflers when we lived in Houston. That was 14 years ago and it had started leaking about the time the head cracked. So we now have a brand new stainless exhaust from AH Spares. It's much quieter and slightly tinnier, but I guess this is mostly to do with the ss exhaust. What have you noticed with the aluminium head?

I fitted a standard Denis Welch head with their head gasket last year. I used the original studs and didn't change anything else. I'm very pleased with the result. All the torque is still there and it really feels like it's supposed to. I've had my BN2 for 16 years and try to keep it as standard as possible. I only changed the head because of a very nasty crack between cylinders 2 and 3 and the list advice was to get a new head.
