    did you do the work yourself or did you have it done by a shop?

    looks very nice either way but if you did it yourself it just makes it that much nicer...

    Portflow is the name of the shop, they do some good work. Its not something I would want to tackle on my own.

    I am doing mine right now by myself, well actually my pops who is an ex-machinist is helping me out, but for the most part it is not that bad, slight learning curve, and a lot of hours getting the finishing polish. I will post up a new thread when I finish mine, I have one more intake port to do, and then i just need to polish up my exausts.

    The valve guides don't look like they were shaped down much...

    Did all thge valves get a 3 angle? i read on an RM forum that it is better for the exhaust valve seats to get a radiused grind instead of the 3-angle, to minimize any exhaust reversion. Good looking head btw.
