    I can only speak for the area that I am in (Maryland) and most guys are between 800 and 1k for a full hand porting job.

    I wouldn't suggest doing it yourself, unless you've got a flow-bench just sitting around.... There used to be a local guy here that did an exchange for $600, and he was getting them to flow great numbers.

    $600.00 wouldn't be a bad price at all! That would make the $2,000. head porting and cam swap route possible! Most of my research from around here indicates that it would cost around $800 - $1,000. for a hand porting job.

    2,000 for head and cam swap is easily attainable

    1k for heads
    600 for cam package with valve springs and pushrods
    Only things left are Head Gaskets and Head Bolts and if you want a new timing chain and oil pump.
