Exhaust port question

Well...I'm thinking about pulling my heads back off and giving the exhaust runners a decent port job. I have vortecs and have heard(and seen flow charts to back it up) that the exhaust is a weak area as far as power is concerned. I noticed that the factory gaskets and manifolds are massive compared to the stock ports.

my question is:

If I "over compensate" what effect will I have? Driveability is not a concern, nor torque under 2500 rpm. I am looking for max power around 62-6500 rpm.

I am thinking that thru the mufflers if i leave the mild port job like i have on the intake and open up the exhaust port to "race" it will be ok, not hurting my midrange too bad.

What do YOU think? Has anybody tried this before?

-Thanks for the experience!
