sbc 291 head porting books? or dvd's

Please help me. Please stick to the topic though I know there might be better heads but these 291's fit my pocket book lol. I already have these they have .575 flat tappet duel springs, screw in studs and guideplates. Im looking for the best way to open them up to the max. Race only. I've never done this before. Im looking for good sources and also advice. What kind of tricks can I do to these. Thanks guys

I have there is little bit on there. But it doesn't go into detail to good. And anyone with a camera can make a youtube video. I kind of want books from experienced builders who have flow tested there work. And know for sure what they are doing.

David Vizard has an older book out called building max performance sbc's on a budget, or something like that. there is a good chapter in there that covers porting heads, he does a set of GM performance heads in there, i think a set of 041's and 186's. shows you the places to take out some metal and shape the ports for better flow- it'd be a good starting point
