Why not port them yourself? You have plenty of spare time. Smile

Have you contacted Lloyd Elliot to check his prices? I'd go with him over AI...

Go with Lloyd Elliot, pricing is a bit better and his service, I have heard, is second to none. I sent a few emails to him a while back to try to understand which of his packages would suit me, and he was awesome in that he spent a few emails back and forth explaining everything to me, telling me where I could cut costs and where it was best to spend a little now and not have to pay it later.

He was a huge help to me and WILL be getting my business in the future, and due to how helpful he was, I have to recommend him.

Doug

Since your planning on spending $3300 on heads, why not take it to the next level? For $1400 more you can have the rest of the engine as well.

that extra $1000 is for for the stuff that you need anyways even if you went with Lloyd,you might be able to save some money if you shop around. plus you should
get a new timing chain set.

well what do you want to do with your car, that is their top of the line port jobs if you went with the 190cc and some other cam not their billet plus reuse stock lifters and cheaper roller rockers you could save alot. yes I think it would cost about the same as Elliots

I have UMI Performance arms on my SS. They are BEEFY! I'll probably run them on my wagon, too, if/when I do the sedan rear swap.

Well, my Impala is just shy of 190K and I still haven't had time to install the uppers! I've been running just the lowers for the past couple years...

For thhe way you'll drive it, I'd say save the money on the uppers, unless your bearings are shot...
