Default Head Work Suggestions PLEASE

Alright guys i've been around cars all my life but never imports. I have been restoring Muscle Cars for the last 10 years or so with my dad. I purchased a 95 Civic with the 1.6 Vtech in it. I have done a few mods to it. Just your basics like Headers, Exhaust, Intake and a few other things. Well i am getting ready for the following upgrades and wanted a little insight since i am not that familar with the import scene. I know what makes horsepower in the cars im used to so im going to stick with that concept i just want some insight from you guys at exactly what im looking at and if you have any suggestions.
P & P heads
Titanium Retainers
Titanium Valve springs
OBX Stage 2 Cam
OBX High Flow Intake Manifold
62mm Throttle Body
Exedy Stage 1 Clutch Kit
High Flow Cat Converter

Thanks for any input you guys have. BTW i have a '69 Yenko Camaro that's sitten at 880hp at the wheels. So like i said i have been around performance cars so if you guys have any more suggestions or maybe some input on what i have suggested it is appreciated. Tyler

Welcome. Yeah you have your head straight. Now work on what you have planned for the block and maybe keep a supercharger or turbo in consideration of all your mods.

So now back to the yenko, do you have the 427 still in there? What mods did you do? Got pictures?

when you do the port and polish remeber that on imports bigger is not always better. There is certain ways to get max HP out of a port and polish from an import. Unfortunatly I never learned, but Ive heard stories where guys get theres done at musclu car shops and they dont gaoin much if any cause poerting and polishing a v8 head is completly differetn then an import head. Just look into it a lil bit more.
