Looking for cylinder head shop
« on: November 19, 2011, 07:22:15 PM »
I have a set of GM LS1 heads that I'm looking to have CNC ported, polished, and reassembled for the Spring; any of you guys in that business, or know someone who is?

I'm not sure who does cnc localy but I sell stock and high performance engine parts though. Could prob get you a good set of aftermarket heads for the same price of porting stock heads. I can beat summit and jegs prices.

ZAG, thanks, but I currently am not interested in aftermarket heads.

Robb, I didn't know if you worked on "real" engines, or just that toy dirtbike stuff :ph34r:

You have PM

Joe, that's sweet; you'll have to bring it up to Kimball's some Friday night this summer!

I have a 2000 Z28 ragtop that I'm working on. Right now she's stock except for a Fast Toys 98mm lid, GM 85mm MAF, DynoMax cat-back, and some spiffy new UMI subframe connectors. Looking at some Kooks long-tube headers (I already have the y-pipe in my cellar) and a camshaft / pushrods / valvesprings for the Spring. I'd like to pull the heads this winter and get some porting done before I put the exhaust and the cam in it.

I'd look into getting a cam/head combo somewhere, I remember hearing nothing but great things from these guys back when I had my LT1, they made all their own grinds for cams and did an awesome job on porting/polishing heads.

Pete, thanks for the info; I'll have a look. That being said, I am really not looking for an aftermarket head; because the car is a convertible and because I want to own it for awhile without twisting it into a pretzel I am only looking to put down about 400 at the wheels. The car made 276RWHP bone stock with a 91 tune; I would wager she's close to 300 now with the exhaust and intake mods I've done, so I am looking for about 100 more. A friend has a 2002 T/A with no head work and a less-radical cam than I am considering and his rig laid 376 down, so a little port work, the headers, and the cam should get me where I want to go. The car doesn't need to be a dragstrip warrior, just quick enough that some high-school girl with a 6-cylinder 'Stang can't take me out on John Fitch, and it needs to make people stop and say "damn, that thing sounds nasty" when I lope into JR's parking lot on Wednesday nights.

Robb, I'll give you a holler tomorrow
