I'm thinking of having my 18* SBC single carb intake ported and was wondering who has had work done by whom and at what cost. Would prefer that Curtis did it since he did the heads but he's so busy with other stuff he's not an option as he won't even answer my PMs.

Don't need any info about Chad Speier or HighVe as they are not an option.

Anyone else out there worth a damn?

Ken,

There is a guy from Dillsburg PA that does porting work. I have seen him on speedtalk. I think that he goes by the name "airflowdevelopment". I know of a few guys that have had him do heads and intake work. They say that he does good work,just he is a little "out there" in his own world at times. Bob

I contacted Dennis over on ST and got a phone number. Will call him one day this coming week.

Thanks again.

I am very satisfied with the porting work that I recieved from Chad Speier on my super vic and airwolf cylinder heads.. Customer service and Workmanship are second to none. Not considering him as an option is a big lose on your part.

I've never said anything negative about his work as he has never done anything for me and I have no opinion on that one way or the other. Glad it worked out for you though. It's his attitude that is the problem and that will be proven by the fact that before the day is over, he will have made posts on every forum he belongs too bitching about MSV, but it's not HIS fault?

Since this has gotten way off topic, this thread will be locked.
