    Head Porn (cylinder)

    Took pictures through the porting process this last weekend. Have a brand new SHO head that i am porting and prepping..
    The factory ports themselves are nice, not much to be done except clean and polish, but the chambers are absolutely horrible, some of the worst ive ever seen.
    Razor sharp lips/edges in the chambers surround both intake and exhaust valves where the aluminum was bored and the stellite valve seat was installed.. Edges are .030-.040 tall which will dramatically hurt airflow.
    Look close on the pics of the uncut head and you can easily see them.
    Before and after pics..

    I use RTV silicone to stick an old head gasket to the flat side of the head for protection while porting it..
