Depends on how fast you're looking to go. You may not need them ported at all. But like Coco says Llyod has the best bang for the buck when it comes to head porting and a great guy to deal with.

Can I have some of this money you're wasting? I could use it. If you want the best street car get a dyno tune and call it a day.

Ok, since the subject is head porting, at what point do you think it is
prudent to get the cyl. heads ported ? I guess saying it another way, at what point in the realm of H.P output would it be best to have your stock heads ported? ed
I would say once you get past bolt ons then head porting work would be a good option. Most people go with cams first and most cam only builds put out around 350rwhp but if paired with heads they could reach closer to 400+ depending on how aggressive the cam is and what not.

been looking at le2 heads after what you guys mention seems like a pretty good deal for the price and seams like alot of people around here use that settup. whats a good streetable cam for a 383 forged with le2 heads? right now im running stock heads on my 383 and i know it is holding it back and i have a hot cam which i know is nowhere near the best cam but i have never been good with picking out cams i am looking for a strong mid to top cam thats pretty streetable? i also love a choppy idle!

Porting shifts the powerband to a higher rpm range and I suggest performance ring and pinion gears to take advantage of the higher rpm power band along with headers and good exhaust of course a good flowing intake and throttle body.

a couple other sources 1st offers various stages of porting and the areas they work on.

For a street car the stage 1 or stage 2 might be what you want
