Thanks for the recommendations guy's.

I spoke with Dwayne and had a good talk about my issues. It seems it would be a waste to mess with these heads so he saved me some money on these..lol

Good guy to talk to. I'll send out my next set of heads to him.

Lots of cylinder head guys out there. If you want hands down the BEST then I would talk to Tom Slawko at Slawko racing heads. Self Racing Heads is another very good shop. The aforementioned shops I am sure also do very good work. Dwayne is always highly spoken of, and I have had some stuff done by CompuFlo and it was nice.

Dwayne Porter! Superb porting, always willing to discuss engine builds and devotes his time, and his word is GOLDEN , in my experiences. Mine would be off to him

We're you looking for improvements beyond what he considers cost effective for those heads?

Dwayne did my X heads, very happy with the work and his patience answering all my questions. He consistently offers well thought out advice on this and other boards I have been on. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to him.

Shane and his Dad specialized in NHRA stokers and SS, not all out street motors usually work
I used Don on some of my iron heads for street and strip a long time ago, several years before he moved to Utah and passed away whiney
Al Etter moved 1/2 a block down the street from me in Hesperia before we moved up here to Oregon shruggy

Dwayne Porter for sure. I’ve been using him for over 15 years and very happy with everything he’s done for me. He does fantastic port work, but also extremely informative, honest, quick and fair.
