    Just asking for some data to back up the purported gains isn't "calling out" anybody. :roll:

      Why don't you guys just port your own heads? It ain't rocket science.

        Results may very. I personally think when companies claim "15 HP HOT AIR INTAKE DYNO TESTED" they are a joke. If you want a quality head hit up Myster-E or Metric Mechanics, if you want a stock head. Take your head to any machine shop. I am a firm believer of "you get what you pay for"

            It looks like 2 stage and PPG paint. I would like to see one in person. That price seems too good to be true but I don't want to drop 6k at a reputable body shop.

            Exactly. I'll sell you some snake oil for $1200 as well.

            That's probably what it will come down to. Either that or a MM head.

            He may do quality work. But where is proof to back up their claims? I am not going to fork over $1200 for "trust me guys, I know what I am doing." You absolutely do get what you pay for but also very often you get less. And in this case with his attitude towards people asking for more info it seems like the latter. Smells fishy to me that is all. No harm no foul. He just won't receive any money from me.

                      Saw this car on my way home today:


                      It sounded like a fucking beast, but wikipedia says it's an 81hp straight 4 under the hood. Oh well, at least it looks cool.

                                a 731 head is a good one to port!!!!:hitler: especially for my bottom end

                                The 885 heads already have very large ports and dont really need to be ported unless you have more than the stock 2.5L displacement. And an eta bottom end doesnt really count
