Can anyone recommend a shop to port and polish my head? I'm in the Mid West and everyone seems to be afraid of Nissans. Also, what is the largest exaust pipe I can put under my car? And one more, 4-2-1 headers or 4-1?

Low end. It'll never go 200 mph, but I want it to get to 80 fast!
well sry i aint tryin to race my car on no track, maybe stoplight to stoplight for these punks round here who think there cavi is fast. and looks, and 1 more question for someone who knows, after i buy headers should i get that header wrap stuff? i was readin that it obviously decreases heat under hood, does it add any power?

A good 4-2-1 header is always the way to go for the KA24 on the street, so that you can take advantage of the great low to mid range power. I would only recommend a port & polish if you have done all the other head parts like Jim Wolf Technology S1 Cams, Springs, and Retainers or Colt Stage 2 Cams and Springs. A multi-angle valve job will give you a better bang for the buck than a full port and polish. Besides, in an N/A application you really need to be running at least 11:1 compression in order to take advantage of the higher flow which a good P&P job would provide. But if you really want a really good job done expect to pay ~$2K plus the cost of the 1mm larger valves that Ferrea sells. The largest pipe for a N/A car would be 2 1/4". Also make sure the exhaust has a resonator in the mid pipe or else the exhaust sound gets annoying.

Just get the ceramic coated headers instead of wrapping them.
