Post Head porting and polishing

I was wondering if anyone could give me any information about head porting and polishing regarding price and a good place to take have it done in the Chicago land area. I have a 350 in my 84 Monte and i want to get a little more power out of it. Have replaced intake, carb, cam, headers and exhaust and the next step i think should be working the stock iron heads a little. If anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

For a street ride all I got to say is save your self the money and tell the machine shop of your choice to blend bowls and back cut the valves. Ay thing more than this is'nt worth the price you'll ikley pay for work. Mods listed below will net you some 30 to 40horsepower whene done right. Any more work than this will cost 500 or more anonly net you an additional 10-20. With that much to spend on hand I'd say a aftermarket head would be the wiser.
