Is it okay to go single...

if you have a stock reman engine, but all of the supporting mods to run a single setup? aka ic, radiator, fuel system, pfc, etc etc.

I am debating if I want to go single or not, but I do not want to have to spend another $3-4k to port the engine and all, especially when this engine only has around 30-35k on it with great compression rates. Say I put a gt35r on would the stock ports/seals be able to hold up? It just wouldn't reach the potential power that the car could make without porting correct?

Its okay to wait till you blow your motor before you decide to do porting work. I would reccomend opening up those ports next time you have to crack open the motor.
