I literally had my head milled flat, pressure tested, dipped (to clean) and a 3 angle done for approx $200 including all gaskets end of last year.

Porting is different, but if you're talking about not having the money to put $200 into the car, put the head back on and push it into a lake.

Lol I think pushing it into a lake would be a bit excessive. Its just a fun budget project to learn more than anything. Honestly even if it only runs for an hour I'll be satisfied. Here's hoping it runs for longer than that though.

What is the deal with those, was a warehouse filled before they realized, or are they still making them wrong?

The guy isn't a user on turbobricks as far as I know. I found the ad on my local classifieds site. I think I might start a new thread discussing my manifold problems because those are unrelated to porting, but in a nutshell, I don't know how I could use the wastegate adapter plate I have with a 90+ manifold, It would be much easier to work with a through-bolt style manifold like the pre 90 or the header. So until I find a way to use the 90+ I have (would have to get a hole repaired). I have to decide between the header which requires a lot of work apparently or the stock pre 90 manifold. Like how much of a difference in HP are we talking here? My goal is 300 is that possible using a pre 90 manifold?? Should I start a new thread discussing my manifold problems specifically, considering this thread was supposed to be about DIY head porting (still cant decide what to do, might just use my dremel and try to gasket match)?

Can anyone link the thread that showed results of ported VS non ported 530 head? I'm still debating.

I made 300whp thru an auto with a stock b230f, stock 530 head, ipd cam, pre-90 mani, and an ebay turbo at 21psi. On LH2.4 and e85. cheap used ls9 injectors, kjet main fuel pump.

However, I've since upgraded to a ported 90+ and definitely could tell a difference. I run out of injector around 26-27psi on that setup, not sure what the power is at that point but I'm sure efficiency is dropping. The only problem the engine has had was a blown headgasket after I sold it and that guy decided to hook up a different boost controller backwards.. glad I bought it back from him.

It's not rocket science.
