Speaking from personal experience these are are some of the most detailed instructions you are going to find on porting heads. Pictures, measurements, you name it - it's all there.

The first timers can take 20 hours or better for budget oriented type work and small valves. I have over the years been able to get to about 10 hours or less.

The full on large valve port job can run 30 to 40 hours for a newbie. I have it down to about 20+.

Max effort 350+ cfm intakes and 200+ exhausts??? Dont even ask... :D

I added the KISS exhaust port pics to the site...

...under the dove specific porting section...


:D

We are getting 15K hits a month now and have over 1000 registered users. This may not seem like much compared to some sites i'm sure but for a niche subscriber only site its not too shabby...

No appreciable difference.

They may be used interchangeable as can the C8 and C9 castings...

Scotty, do you have any 4500 victor intakes already gasket matched, or ported to fit dove heads?
The heads have to be port matched to the victor intakes as cast intake ports which are dove sized but on cj centers.

hello,do you have anything for d2oe heads opened up to scj ports ?

the PI head has the iron cj exhaust port with a bit better exhaust short turn.

The intake is a smaller version of the iron cj port architecture and is ported in the same manner. The cj match is not needed unless you are using a cj intake manifold. The victor port match is best for use with the eddy victor intake...

The basic porting techniques outlined in the site for iron heads and the pics of the PI and cj ports should give the needed information for working your heads. Anything else thats needed i can fill in via email if needed...
