:mad: I swear, I called around today for about an hour and nobody will port and Polish a mustang V6. I just dont get it. I called machine shops, I even called those little rice rocket stores to see if they knew anything......big mistake :shrug they didnt know anything at all. Can anyone help me. I live in Hawaii. Do I have to take them off myself and send them in? I dont think I can do all that.

Or you can puchase already P&Ped heads, have someone install them (any shop can do an install, though they might not know enough to do the P&P work) and then send your old heads to get your core charges back.

by the time you pay to have the items ported it will not be that much more if any more money to just buy the items already ported

yea, Im thinkin of just ordering new heads and maybe a new intake P&P while Im at it. Possibly a new Cam as well. Since the shipping is gonna suck ass and the parts are mildly expensive too, Im probably looking to spend about $1500 including installation......is that about right? :shocked:

Installing heads isn't difficult at all. It's installing all the lifters, rods, etc, and shimming them that's difficult, if you use adjustables.

If you're planning on buying new heads & intake, already assembled, pretty much all you're gonna need is gaskets, sealant, assorted wrenches, and a torque wrench.
