    stock heads, porting and milling?

    Thinking about going ahead and putting a cam in my car.

    Texas Speed 228r - 228/228 .588/.588 on a 112lsa

    My question, how much can the stock heads be ported? And with that cam, just how much could i have the stock heads milled, without worrying about flycutting.

    Thanks!

    you can really open up the stock heads so they will flow a lot better, I took a big pile of material out of mine....very noticeable difference.
    if you are doing them yourself there are a few spots you have to becareful of breaking into thr water jackets.
    with that cam you should beable to mill a good bit off the hrads before you have any clearance problems

    if possible go for the 243 heads (ls6) then go and port and mill..but if not..then the ls1 castings can be had to flow well

    Call texas speed and tell them your buying a 228 from them in the future but first you need to know how far you can mill down
    59cc is atainable.
