Should I port my cylinder head?

But for those of you who don’t know, porting and polishing your heads is beneficial for power and efficiency of the engine. In a lot of cases, because of the increased CFM of the heads, as much as 30 horsepower is typical with good port work.

Does head porting increase HP?

Porting the heads will definitely help airflow. You will gain 25 HP over the stock setup.

Does port and polish add HP?

Don’t expect huge leaps in horsepower; results obviously depend on the original state of the cylinder head and the quality of the workmanship. If you believe online forum chatter, LS1 cylinder heads can give anywhere between 10 to over 50bhp extra from a port and polish, so it is by no means a linear process.

Does porting heads increase compression?

In general, head porting does not affect compression. Porting the head usually means enlarging the intake and exhaust runners, that’s it. However, some porters “work” the combustion chamber, removing material for whatever reason. This will lower the compression.

What does a ported head do?

Cylinder head porting refers to the process of modifying the intake and exhaust ports of an internal combustion engine to improve their air flow. Cylinder heads, as manufactured, are usually suboptimal for racing applications due to being designed for maximum durability.

Do cylinder heads increase horsepower?

In addition to revising the camshaft events, one of the best methods of bolt-on power relates to the cylinder heads. Improved throttle response, ‘fatter’ power and torque curves, and peak horsepower can all be generated through selecting the right cylinder heads for the engine combination.

How are cylinder heads improve intake port flow?

This study also concern about the improvement of the power itself compare to the old cylinder head of both engine and how much the increment of power that will relies when this analysis on improvement of both cylinder head.

Why are cylinder head ports bigger than valves?

So, what you get is an industry full of heads that flow great from .500 lift on but are lazy on the car. Because velocity means more than flow! Air flow means something, and big ports and big valves don’t equal air speed. Simply put, the big stuff shines on the flow bench but runs like a dog with flees on the car.

Why are dimples used in cylinder head porting?

In a port, we are looking to create a situation where fuel stays off the wall of the port. So the dimples would (in theory) help create this boundary layer of air that would keep the fuel off the wall and in suspense and atomized. First off, more than likely you have an engine with modern fuel injection if your reading this.

What kind of port does a CNC head use?

4A-GE 16 valve large port & small port including the very latest Formula Atlantic spec. CNC porting available.
