Default boring cylinder heads

I was wondering if anyone has had their cylinder heads bored out? If so what did you have them bored too? Pistons? ect... very curious if this has been done.

thanks

There's nothing to bore on the heads except the valve seats and if you are going to start messing with changing the valve size you need to do your research on calculating the right size based on changes you make to cams, intake, psi, exhaust and cylinder bore.

The information is readily available to a resourceful googler and it's all math. I'm not going to take the time to dig up my own research since doing the work yourself is very important to taking on a job like that.

yes its been done, but unless you plan on investing actual money into the motor don't bother.


I have custom valves, springs, ported heads, pistons, rods, etc all in a 3.5 just buy it and save yourself a ton of headaches

My block was bored and sleeved. I have forged pistons by CP and forged rods.
