I'm just full of questions tonight, anyway, what exactly is porting and polishing the head mean, and if i have it done to my car, what else would have to be changed? would the stock valves still work or would i have to buy new ones? That's all for now <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Hey man, I have a 94 Scoupe (soon to be turbo) and I have a ported and polished head on it. My neighbor did if for me. He builds race engines for VW. He ported the runners and ground down the valve guides. He also did a three angle valve job and shimmed the valve springs. This makes the engine breeth alot better. I dynoed the car with the p/p head, cold air intake, and full exhaust, and a few other small things. It put down 94hp at the wheels and that was with a slipping clutch and 100,000 miles on the bottom end. That equates to about 120 at the crank.

..i need to become better friends with my neighbor. he rebuilds old engines..v8's and such of course. but he does everything. and he works at a machine shop... but hes always so busy. plus the fact that he thinks "kids shouldn't have fast cars" i just turned 18.. am i still a "kid" haha.. but i dunno if i should just see if he'll let me help him do anything..watch him do ****..or just save up alot of cash and approach him as a customer... would be cool if i could be friends with him and get a discount plus learn things, or help him do stuff on my car and get the experience plus cheap/free mods
