    Not sure how much the pros charge but for ~ $200-300 you can buy an arbor and cutter and do it yourself, I bought some Comp Cams ones to do the VN heads I'm putting together for my HQ. You just need a decent variable speed electric hand drill and a bit of patience, took 2-3 hours to do all 16 seats and (using a second cutter) machine it for teflon valve stem seals.

    Old school small port heads can get away with the big old school duration, because you have tiny cross section in the ports and not much flow .. Try that shit on the new 260cc+ LS3 heads on a 6.0 and you'll have a turd ...

    ive noticed when talking to people in the field as soon as you mention you saw this or read that on a forum they shoot you down and dont want to even listen to what you have to say. even if you say "oh but they have their own workshops too". i just get a real negative vibe so i dont bring it up anymore what i see or read on forums.

    There is some real good info on forums, you just have to be smart enough to read beween the lines and seperate the BS from fact. Just take a look who is doing what and how sucessful they are.

    ^^ Yup exactly that. I built a 500+hp 355 for 10k from this forum alone. Listening to the right folk and a good machinist.
    Can't imagine it could be done better or cheaper, anywhere.

    I think that post was a spam or a bot, to me it doesn't fit in with the conversation that was going on in this thread. Also why would a newby user from the US be commenting on early 308 heads for his 1st or 2nd comment? There is another (IMHO) out of context post from this user in the VN head thread.
