Ford 2.3 Turbo Head Services
8/3/2013 - Unfortunately we are experiencing high work loads in the shop and currently are not offering any custom cylinder head services. We are however offering our stage 3 head assemblies and parts. Please call or email us to check availability of parts and current backlog time for stage 3 head builds before ordering from our site. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to help with your project soon.
Below are some of the main services we offer to assist with your performance 2.3 head build. If you do not see the services you seek listed below, please contact us. If you are looking for many of the below services and parts, please check out some of our cast iron and aluminum head packages available in the products section. These services are not available for direct purchase off of our site, please email us to place an order and arrange shipping of your head to us for work to be performed. The below quotes are assuming you send us a head that is ready to be worked on (mostly clean and disassembled). If the head is not cleaned and/or still assembled, there will be an additional $50 charge.
Stage 1 porting
The best bang for the buck porting option if you are on a budget. Our stage 1 port usually outflows other shop's FULL porting. This level of porting focuses on blending of the valve seat angles into the bowl and short turn of the port, where the largest airflow gains are achieved (even more-so with oversized valves).
Cast Iron- $299
Stage 2 Porting
Same as our stage 1 porting, with the addition of work performed around the guide bosses and some valve unshrouding in the combustion chamber for further flow gains.
Stage 3 Porting
There is no question why our stage 3 porting is used in more of the highest power producing 2.3 turbo cars than any other competitor combined . Let us help YOU reach your wildest goals with our stage 3 porting option, custom for your application.
Cast Iron- $749
Stage 4 Porting
Race only- please contact for more information.
