porting question

Hey all, I recently got a good deal on an extra set of stock heads and the upper and lower intake off of a 2002 V6(same year as mine). My question is, if I get these ported, will I have to do anythign else to make it work? Here are my mods...other than re-tuning the car, would it work fine with my current mods?

2002 V6, y pipe magnaflow kit, CAI, 3.73 gears, auburn posi, steeda tri-ax, tune from VMP.

Now, if it'll work fine with my current set-up and a re-tune, how much power can I expect? Also, I have the stock cam

Re: porting question

if you were to port everything I would get rid of the y-pipe kit and go with an actual dual exhaust. While your doing it a cam would be a great idea aswell man.

Re: porting question

yea dont do a head/intake without buying a cam specced out to your setup. Cam is only 150ish dollars for a regrind.

When you get them ported make sure they deck them as well and check to make sure that the valves seal good.

I would suggest looking at getting some Adjustable Roller Rockers too if you can afford them
