V6 Mustang Ported & Polished Heads

OK im currently calling around the local engine shops for a port and polish job for my car! One of the shops told me that a port and polish wouldnt be worth doing!!!! LOL I was blown away! Im not as heavy into the engine work as the audio aspect, but i do know that more air more power (generally speaking). So he continues to tell me that installing headers, chip, and ud pulleys would give me about 40 hp. ok fine, i had him price a supercharger and came up with the vortech for $4200 installed, gaining 60-80 horse.
I told him that i WANT around 300, a respectable sleeper!! lol He continues to blow more smoke up my A** by informing me that i would need to really build the engine to get that. I think that he just doesnt want to do the p&p.
Now from what i read on the forums porting and polishing HELPS!!!!
Any input to what he's thinkin?

P & P with headers would be better than with the stock manifolds.

It's not going to add a tremendous amount of power.

edb2007, you can buy a set of P & P heads for $500 as well as upper & lower intake for the same price.

go to 3.8mustang.com and take a look.

I would be scared to let that guy you mentioned touch it .

Well, he's batting 1 for 3.

you can't get 40 hp from bolt-ons, particularly headers, which are worthless w/o boost.

The port & polish is the single most effective change you can make, outside of a cam swap.

You really should stick with six specialists, and someone withbench flow measurement capability.

you really want good flow at low to mid lift rather than all out for a street engine

Depends on what you want done.

Redlined Performance Mustangs, Tom Morana Racing Engines, Coy Miller, and Delk all do P&P work for the six.

All of them put out some great numbers, (although I haven't seen Miller's work on 99+ heads -he gets great numbers from pre-99 heads).

Looks like we'll be doing the old rip, ship, and strip with Matt.

This guy gave us no feeling of confidence KS. These guys are supposed to be the premier specialists in the area for rebuilding. Compared to what?

Where have you been? Sick or sabbatical?
