K13 conversion description below (taken from http://www.dvapower.co.uk)
"Includes a fully ported big valve cylinder head with larger REC inlet and exhaust valves , the head is fitted with Piper fast road cams and Piper springs with Piper steel caps to allow later fitment of more aggressive cams later if desired. The head as modified flows enough air for 200BHP so is ideal when later upgrades are planned. Gives large gains in torque and much better drivability. Works with the standard EU2 and EU3 ECU.
Work to the cylinder head includes extensive porting to both inlet and exhaust ports, heavy modification to the combustion chamber , radiused valve seats and tapered guides. The valves are tufftrided and fully lapped to the seats. Inlet valve size is 29.5mm and exhaust size is 26mm. The valve springs will accomodate all cams up to 11.5mm lift."
