    just scanning through my mustang wonders and was wondering if porting the stock heads is worth it. what kind of a power difference can you expect when this is done? i have an entire article printed out somewhere on how to do this. if i can find it, ill post up the link.

    there was a article in either 5.0 mag or MM&FF about this, and they got almost 40hp out of a port and polish job, its been a couple years back but I know it was in one of those two mags.........they are the only two I subscribe to :)

    If you have air tools and a tungsten/carbide grinder bits it's not hard at all.
