I have a set of 440-1 heads that I would like to get brought into 21st century.
Heads were originally ported/flowed by Muscle Motors in 2001, I am attaching the flow sheet.
I had to practically beg them over a 2 month time frame to send me the flow sheet. I have always had doubts that it is really the flow sheet for my heads, and not just one they pulled out of their files and sent me to get me off their back.

I have called and emailed Modern Cyl Heads, and Chad Speier but I guess they do not need any more business as they never returned my call or emails.

Heads are on my 500 cu. in. 8.71 blown/injected, on alcohol, dragster.

So I am looking for a good head guy.

Thanks
Dave

Jr. is a very bright young man and he really paid attention when his father taught him how to port heads and build engines. If he is too busy Bart Anderson is very good too and he also learned some tips from Nick to make Indy heads flow nice.
If you wan't more info send me a PM so I can get your info to either of these gentlemen.

Give some consideration into stepping up to a 2.250 intake valve when you send them out. I ported the set I am putting on a 505 and they are flowing great but I want to see how close to 400 cfm I can get them to. The 440-1 heads get a weight break as the B1 heads do not so I’m curious how far I can get them.


1970 Duster
Edelbrock headed 408
6.143@110.85 mph
9.73@135.05 mph shifting at 6700 RPM
422 Indy headed small block
5.982@112.56 mph
9.42@138.27

Livin and lovin life one day at a time

If they were my heads they would be on the way to Porter Racing Heads in VT. If that is too far away from you then you might consider IMM in Indio, CA or Fastlane Machine in Utah.

Mine went to modern, but I dealt with Scott brown. A lot easier than dealing direct with modern.

Id agree on AndyF post, all 3 are good, I'd talk with Fast first, he has the best rep for finishing them when he tells you

Dwayne did my 440-1’s. Excellent job. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
My EZ-1’s were done by Nick Sr. Did not know his son took over after he passed away.
That’s good to hear that the family business is still going.

Porter would be my choice.

The Goodwin raised port indy heads sold by Best Machine would be something I would want if my wallet would allow

Dwayne told me years ago to send my Eddy RPM to Modern for CNC porting, that was before Jeff passed away work
I had him do several CNC porting on some B1-BS and some other 440-1 , all ran good on the motors up
Bob has told me several years ago that he is very busy now and the normal porting delivery time is about 3 to 4 months out after he receives them work
I tried a local roundy round race machine shop in Vancouver, WA last year on one of my own street motors and ended up being very disappointed on a set of 440-1 that I wanted them to replace the valve guides and anything else they needed, they came back with the guides way looser than I like or expected down whiney They had done some other street motor head work for me in the past that was good, not anymore now down
My message is go for the best you can get when it comes to head work, just like brain surgery work grin

Yes,there are several porters around,I feel that the porting procedure is only part of the picture! Dwayne will not only port and flow your heads,but help you with the entire package.Match a cam and the right springs to your heads,better off letting him assemble the head !!! up
