I have only one thing to say.
When you get done, come on over to my house to do mine. I would
love a 5L. Please keep us up to date on your project. Is 3" a bit much?
And are you going to use one of the swap kits I keep hearing about?

After the post, I got a private e-mail telling me how good headers
were on a 2.9. It is subjective, still I would have to experience it before
spending that kind of money and effort for headers.
