I had my heads Ported and Polished by GSM They did a great job!! You MUST do the Cold Air Intake and the entire exhaust including headers to get everything out of the porting in My opion.

I ordered it from Power ported performance.. it tooks them 2 days to have them shipped it out, fully rebuild with Titanium retainers, Valve springs, push rods.
The porting was CNC, i will try to get you some picutures tomorrow. I have not installed it yet.
I got a really good deal compare to what you can find in the market, with CNC porting, it was really worth it.

Re: Anyone with ported heads?

Some new heads are in the works? Soon they will be released and nobody has tried then yet. I'll comment after seeing them and after they are installed. (not on my JGC) Gene

Re: Anyone with ported heads?

Heads and ported heads do the same thing - increase and smooth the flow of air/fuel into the cylinders. Headers on the other hand remove the exhaust gas from the cylinders, aftermarket long tube headers do it more efficiently.
