There's usually an area (seen in the image below) that needs attention on all the valves (click on image below for a page on head porting). Just don't get into the valve seat or the machined angles approaching just above and below the seat if the heads have been given a three angle valve job.

Research where the short turn radius is located and leave that area alone.

Good luck.
