port polishing heads and intake manifold

Ok well since I still haven't put my new engine in I figured it's a good time to do this.
I've been learning how to port polish heads and intake manifold but I don't want to risk it and mess something up.
Is there anyone that knows how and could do it for me?
In Austin, Texas.
Just name the price, if you don't have the tools i'll buy them.
Thanks.

If someone does it perfect, which I doubt. Because you need a cnc machine and the blue prints to do it perfect. With a cam you will gain 35 hp and loose 30 tq.

PI intake does not need to be ported. Heads are great to port but I would start with 8 thread cores if yours aren't already.

You can also buy heads already ported for $1500-$1800 depending on the "level" of porting and sell your heads to make up some $$$.

However... you will spend the same or less money just supercharging the car and make well over 100whp more to boot. The stock PI heads and intake actually flow pretty well, better than people think. These are to the NPI heads what GT40 heads were to the E7s in pushrod land.

the car isn't running (engine is getting swapped out), I would need someone to come to me. And yeah I think i'll do that. How much do people usually charge for porting?

This is for a v-6. The only place I know that is still open is Tom Morona Racing Engines and Super Six Motor Sports. Tom starts at $600 but you do not get big valves. Like I said if you get the best cam 207/215 and get the best port, with big valves. You will gain 35 hp and loose 30 tq. Here is what you need with the heads because it is a support mod............http://www.ebay.com/itm/331120030679...84.m1555.l2649

Oh god... for $4k you can take that money, sell your current ride with a basic running motor in it and turn around and buy a GT that will blow the doors off your ported/polised 3.8L. Not trying to be an *** that's just the way it is.

I can understand doing a V6 Mustang for a cheap commuter that is still a Mustang but for performance... no.

I would be too proud to sell her since i'm building her back together and making it run again after I don't know how long.
I know the gt kicks *** but insurance for a 19 year old with a DUI isn't very friendly. Also I don't the money cash, I was just going to buy the parts as the year goes on. Some of the money would also come from selling my Malibu.

Damn!! Lol I had a friend who had like 4 DUIs before he even graduated from high school. I didn't know him at the time though.

He also was a former crackhead but hooked me up with "work" and a bunch of *****es lol

He also had a bad *** Chevy custom deluxe 3(4?) speed which I doubt he laid insurance for hahaha
