I got the guide bosses cut down and shaped as close as I could to the pictures in Vizards book. These pictures don't show the shape very good but they come to a point on the top of the guide and taper down. I'm kinda skittish on taking anymore out. Do ya'll think I should leave the intake ports alone or port them as well? Also, finished all the guides on this head. From the pictures it looks like I cut the spring seats but I just skimmed the top to knock the varnish/dirt off. Please let me know what ya'll think not only about the intake ports but all the stuff I have done thus far. I plan to either start pulling and taping the studs tomorrow or, if ya'll think I need to port the intakes or any other stuff, i'll do that. I do know i'm really enjoying this, lol. Here are the pictures
