Dave and others,
Thanks for the reassurance and I'll continue with MY ideas versus this particular local builder's (when you live in BFE, there aren't a lot local opinions). Sometimes you can be made to doubt your best plans when an expert questions you straying from the pack. Your statements above were my exact thoughts.
My understanding is that all 993 heads are made out of a material similar to the 930 heads. This is probably due knowledge, price, less efficient fans, larger bores and higher compression that all push head temperatures. Bill V. was discussing this somewhat recently in the engine building forum.
