Another Timing Belt Failure

Just like it says. Newbies take notes. 2000 GS Bone Stock B18B1 5spd
I bought this car for $1000.00 Not running kind of. One owner car, dealer maintained, 120K miles. Owner bought a TL and just parked the TEG. All it took was a battery, gas, and fluids (oil, coolant, brake and clutch). But what I over looked was the T Belt. Driving one day it just died. WTF. So what did it do. Stripped the belt, smacked and bent the valves. When it says 80K don't push it. I believe the problem was the car sat idle for so long the belt just dried out. Worst thing for a car is not to drive it. So with the help of the "Search" button and a chit load of reading and a bit of You Tube I'm knee deep in it. I found a rebuilt head on Craigslist for cheap with P&P and all BC parts. I'm a Big Block Chev guy so DOHC is all new to me. So a regular guy with skill CAN do this. FYI get the crank pulley tool (a must have). Auto Zone loans it out.

So what's in store for my little weekend car? With this head I should be looking at more air in and out. I/E/H is about all I'm looking to do unless I swap cams for something with a little more bump. Any suggestions for mild cams?
