    Finish your ports by hand, that is one of the best ways to go. I did my ports my self and they turned out beautiful. Expect to spend a lot of time working on them though, I have probably 100 hours of labor on that thing.

    have you used a flow wand yet? It will help you decide where you should deshroud the valves and where to leave them alone

    im pretty sure summit carries all that good stuff
    also man, youm gotta be careful around where the valve seats itself in the head. if you take off to much, it can get dangerous. i hope your going to get a valve job when ur all done. what you should have done is lay your old valves in the head so when you were going at it with the polishing you didnt hit the original seat.
