After the piss poor performance I had at the track with my previous 396ci setup I decided I had better re-work the heads.  As you could see in my Canfield head page there was very little done port wise.  Actually, for $500 I would have expected MMC to spend some time on them.

Anyway, Greg at Greg's Automotive (815-690-1234) has spent a significant amount of time on them at a very reasonable price.  He has worked on stock LT1 casting, Canfields (LT1 and ford), Dart, etc.  This is just a quick web page to let people check out the porting that Greg has done.

Intake ports
He spent quite a bit of time straightening the ports using some creative thinking along the way.
Intake1 - Intake2 - intake3 - intake4 - intake5 - intake6 - intake7

Exhaust Ports:
Greg felt the exhaust ports were pretty good.  He did some porting and polishing there though.
Exhuast1 - Exhaust2 - Exhaust3 - Exhaust4 - exhaust5

Compression Chambers:
 Since we were decking the block to a zero deck height from about 0.020" he wanted to open the chambers up some to keep the CR in order.  To do this he had to reshape the chambers some.
