I have read that adding larger valves to Vortecs is bad because it decreases intake charge velocity. Also the casting is pretty thin and close to the water jacket and cutting for larger valves increases chances of a crack developing which is also a factor that needs consideration when porting Vortecs. The intake flow numbers for Vortecs are pretty awesome. They are lackluster in exhaust flow, so if you port, do the exhaust side.
