Why does everyone always think that patriot makes heads.... they are just ported PI heads.

Send them to FoxLake.

I've heard great things about Fox Lake but they are pretty pricey. Look around and do some research.

What do i look for? There are Machine SHops that will Port them here. But im sure they dont have Proven Flow numbers Like Fox lake... if they Mess up the Ports im worried they will say I did something wrong...


and getting them done locally i can have them Day after i drop them off!!!

Well see if they DO have flow #'s. If not I would prolly go w/ Fox Lake but it's totally up to you. I would prolly go w/ Fox Lake myself

I like the idea of supporting the local guys, then again I work at a machine shop lol. I will say tho, if a shops telling u you'll have them back the next day, there either full of ****, doin a half assed job, or buisiness is really slow lol... We usuallt can't even get a valve job out in a day, just because there's so much goin on all the time.

The Shop is pretty Reputable(SP?). There is a 9 Second Turbo Fox that lives on my road and they got their Heads Done there...(Said she got them back Next Day). The shop is Kinda Pricey i have heard. they build the BIG Dragsters and Race Boat Engines. The Machine shop is HUGH.. last i visited they had an Engine Dyno Being Setup...
