better mid/top end. a few lads who have run my 20xe heads on stock motors have seen a decent gain in pick up and grunt too

obv like any other mod if you have cams, decent exhaust, etc they all work better with eachother. you may gain say 5bhp with just a head, but with a set of cams you may gain 15bhp and more mid range torque, all depends what else has been done to how much gain you get.

i used to run a c16xe with inlet, pistons, l/b, ported head and stock exhaust mani/system in my corsa and that would spank 106gti's and valver corsas up to about 100 and be really revvy too.
