You can also ask for the GT40p "camouflage" work (bars and GT40p markings removal) ........ that way you can also tell your future victims, that the heads you have installed are E7s........ Click the image to open in full size.

Yep.... if you check the pics I posted, the top one was taken while they were still being worked, the bottom one was taken before shipping them to me. We decided to have him paint them Ford truck gray........ for a more "sleeper" look.

i had my gt40 heads done with him... this is part of an email he sent me...

"The port work/ surfaced flat/ performance valve job/ assembled, bolt on ready, will be 595.00 IF I need to upgrade the springs.. and most of the time they are needed, than I'll add the 140.00 spring package up grade for 100.00!! SOOOoo... total of $695.00 !! cool?? see attached for shipping...And of course we are using your heads so NO core fees!!"

I was really happy with what i got back.

Thumper is an old school craftsman that charges to little for his work. If you walked into another head ported and asked them to replicate Mikes (Thumper)work it would cost about $1000.
