    Gunho. i want to give you some heads up on the cast iron porting thing..

    1- if you get this done make dern sure you have the right person doing the port work or it can hurt them, as with any port work to any head.

    2- Give it some thought about putting a-lot of money in a cast head..( find the right port guy and have it priced)..i am confident a good port man will not be cheap.

    3- Before putting a ton of money in a cast head..go ahead and start you a "HEAD FUND"....and go buy you some off the shelf CNC ported DART PRO-ONE heads.or AFR'S with similarspecs

    why ?...because these heads are gonna have Bigger valves ( much more HP)...flow much better, lighter.....also if you ever crack one or go as far as blowing a chamber completly out you can have it fixed since its aluminum.


    i think once you check the price of Quality port work that will amount to anything you could have put a little more to it and went 1st class..

    been there done this one before.

    A bigger valve doesn't always equal more HP, even if they flow more air with the bigger valve.

    Valve size is part of the combination, and can be over done, just like too big of cam.
