    Sounds like your going for it mate, should be a flyer when itys done! have you had the compression raised, thats something i would look at if i was you, can make good gains..

    Just match the exhaust ports manifold and gasket so its all smooth, do the same with the inlet gasket too.

    dont want to port and polishes myown head would probaly make it worse than better.
    will be geting in done by some one who knows what the are doing in the future and get the manifolds mached to the head and biger valves will cost between (£800-1000)+rolling road set up.

    Ive matched a few ports but i was being advised by an expert and i was shiting myself, glad i did it though... My bro had a Blydenstein B+ on his old 8v engine and it was an amazing difference.
