I completely agree with you, and have been looking into the same mods(except ofr M52). Intakes and exhaust systems give you decent power increase, but not compared to ported heads and custom cams.
Buying another head to send out is the way to go. You can sell your existing head when the other one is back from the machine shop.
But, all of the increased head flow is useless if you don't get more air through the intake manifold. I haven't been able to find a high flowing intake manifold that didn't require an OBDI conversion. I live in NY and switching from OBDII to OBDI is illegal and you can fail inspection. Has anyone seen a free flowing intake that didn't require the conversion?
