FE Head Porting Tutorial?

Is there an FE specific head porting tutorial somewhere? I've got a set of C4AE-G heads that already have CJ valves in them, but I'd like to port them. This will be for a street and maybe occasional strip motor. What I'm really looking for is photos of what to take out, what to leave and what not to touch so I don't screw this up. These are great heads and I don't want to mess them up. Thanks all!

Re: FE Head Porting Tutorial?

you can start by cleaning out any flashing in the bowl and carefully blending it to the seats. then remove the sharp edges and casting lines.
As for not touching - the floor of the port needs only casting flashing removed.
You may be able to find a set of templates for porting but make sure they are for your port arrangement. (low, medium, high riser ports)
