Ported heads

About how much does it cost to port stock pi heads? And hp gains? Worth it? I don't wanna drop money on trick flow heads so I would rather port these if it's cheaper?

Depends on where you go, and quality of work. Near me (Tampa bay) 3-400 is about average for 2V porting. But that doesn't Include labor to remove and re- install. It would be cheaper than getting TFS heads, but its gonna come down to what you want to do with your car.

I could take the heads off myself. Is there a way to get bad porting?

Yeah, someone could do a bad job, but as long as the place is a reputable business, or the person is known for good quality, then I wouldn't worry. Look up performance shops around your area, and make some calls. Go to some car shows and talk to other enthusiast in your area. Thats the best way to get to know who's good and who's not.

Okay. But with a bad job would that hurt it? I'm not sure what can happen.

Uneven or rough edges, disruptive flow, leaky valves, if they take off too much they could make the walls too thin, etc...etc...

Yeah, I've always thought about picking up a cheap set and practising myself. I think that would be a cool trait to learn. And you could probably make a few bucks if you have the spare time.

$400 what crack rocks are you guys smoking? Fully PP'd PI heads with all the new stuff and bigger valves run about $1500 or so.

but that's new valves and what not, if it's just mild it shouldn't be that bad, if it's a mild PP I've seen it usually around that price

Ummmm never done drugs. Don't associate with people that do.........

And if you read the thread, you'd know I was referring to porting the heads already on the engine. Maybe you need to lay off the pipe?

Its still going to cost near that much by the time you are done for a fully ported and gone through set of heads with bigger valves/all new hardware etc...
