Hoping to abide by the rules.....

Hi... I'm oldeskewltoy - aka Dan, professional cylinder head porter - my email: oldeskewltoy@yahoo.com

I've been working on automobiles for the better part of 4 decades.

For the past 20 years I've been dabbling in the rwd Toyota arena having owned a few AE86s, and currently owning "Surreptitious", my 2200#, 170hp, 32 MPG, 6 speed equipped... AE71.

As to my professional experience porting cylinder heads - Google search showing OST port work threads

Pictures are always good... so here are a few...... ;)

Ford Mazda 2.2 head (Probe and MX6) before and after on the exhaust ports...

Toyota 4AGE intake ports/bowls - left side work mostly complete

I've also been "digging" into SR20 heads as well.....
