Looking at my Chevy 383 Ported "Revised" Pro Comp Aluminum Heads rat rod sbc
I was asked what I do to port a set of Revised Pro Comp heads. There are so many things to touch upon but I'll just mention what I did on these to be quick. A little about me,,I've been building engines for 30 years now. I've been porting heads about 20 years. I try to keep up with whats going on and I continually study online. I buy new books and engine building software(Desk-top Dyno/Dragstrip,etc). I'm impressed with the software results. Anyway,,When I saw these heads online I wanted to see just how they stacked up to Darts,Brodix,Edelbrock,etc. I had also read where people were bashing them. Some said they were cheaply made castings, others bashed 'em because they're made overseas. Then later they re-emerged as "New & Improved". I have a friend that sells them online and he built up a 383 and we ported a set and they did very well,,especially for the {lack of) money. When I first looked at 'em I didn't like the areas in the ports that are under the valve seats. I point out the areas at the start of the vid. There are small areas under the valve seats that are noticably machined away. It's nothing to be concerned with as none have ever failed that I know of. There are great photos online that show these heads aggressively CNC Ported,they're so huge that the Intake Ports run into Int bolt hole bosses(I can email you the pics if you need them). Thats too big as they'll have to run sleeves in the mounting holes. Something that I recommend too is to look at the ports online of the major manufactuers of racing heads,,or if available look at ones being built at a local machine shop. When I port a set of heads I make a thickness gauge out of coat hangers. When finished it looks like an "X". It accurately reflects how thick the metal is while porting so that you don't go too far and it helps to get ports consistent ( I'll add that 'how too' later). One unusual thing that I do is lap the valves to the seats with an electric drill motor. It's reversible and takes just a second for each valve and seat to show the correct "grey ring". It takes about 3 minutes to do each head. The results are outstanding with the seats showing concentricity. Most local machine shops just cut the valves, then the seats,,then assemble them. If you do the solvent test they usually leak,,sometimes badly. Thats cylinder leak down,,less power,smoking,blow by,etc. So you get what you pay for. What I mean is that I ALWAYS disassemble the stuff at home and inspect the work. When I find a problem I take it back to the machine shop.Most machine shops don't like a guy who knows how to inspect the work. A good machine shop is really hard to find not just the work but the people there. I know of a few local machine shops in central Arkansas that will do bad work for one customer and great work for another intentially.A lot of times they're racing rivals. Remember, when you get crappy work and run it ~ it'll run crappy or not work,,or last very long. So when you take the stuff apart at home you can see who your friends are. I think it's important to spend your money where the quality of the work is at the forefront of the business.Thats why I drive to a good place with modern machines and trained people. You can have an intelligent conversation and get what you ask and pay for. One more thing,,Try my drill method for lapping the valves,,it works really smoothly.Second thing,,the old notion of polishing the ports has been proven wrong scientifically,especially on the Intakes. They need a slight texture,,look up why.Too much to go into here. Theres even guys who epoxy pebbles or marbles on the bottoms of their racing boats to ride more on air,,reducing friction. On the motor,, I'll start the engine in the next few days and then later toss it into an 86 S-10. It'll have an old school turbo 350 with shift kit and an old Vega Stall Convertor. I can port a set of these heads in a day and a half for about $300.oo The Iron stock type heads are harder and take more time and cost a little more. I've ported about 30 sets now and got to run half of them and got to see how they do. Porting works! and makes quite a difference. Thanks for looking.

Jungle Jim and Jungle Pam - Drag Racing Legends
Years before John Force arrived on the scene, drag racing's original flamboyant showman was "Jungle Jim" Liberman; a larger-than-life individual whose flaming burnouts, glib personality, and boundless energy helped endear him to fans in a manner that eluded other drivers with better winning records. Liberman was much more than a touring professional; with his wild wheelstands, 100-mph backups from burnouts, stubborn refusal to lift on even the most out-of-shape runs, and his curvaceous companion, "Jungle Pam" Hardy, Liberman provided all the entertainment of a traveling circus. Liberman's life, like the lives of many fast-living icons of youth such as James Dean, Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin, was as short as it was fast-paced. He died at the age of 32 after suffering fatal injuries in a head-on collision with a bus on Sept. 9, 1977. His premature passing left a void in the sport that wasn't replaced until Force's explosive personality emerged in the late 1980s. Today, the legend of "Jungle Jim" lives on with "Jungle Pam," his constant companion in his heyday who titillated race fans with her skimpy outfits and provocative on-track actions. "At every race track that I go to," said Hardy, "everyone comes up and asks for my autograph. They ask what he was like and if he was as crazy as they've heard. The fans really miss him, and they miss the fun part of drag racing. The sport has become so professional now that there's no room for any of that anymore." "I was just 18 when I met him. I was still attending high school in West Chester, Pa., and had never been further away from home than the next town over. I was walking down the street one day, and here comes this yellow Corvette speeding down the street. This guy walks out, comes up to me, and says, "Hi, I'm Jim." I had never been to a drag race before, but the next thing I knew, we we're heading for his match race in Xenia, Ohio. He showed me how to back him up after the burnouts, and from then on, my life was just a whirlwind tour all over the country." Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers song "American Girl" was released in 1977, the same year Jungle Jim passed away. Well she was an American girl Raised on promises She couldn't help thinkin that there Was a little more to life Somewhere else After all it was a great big world With lots of places to run to Yeah, and if she had to die Tryin' she had one little promise She was gonna keep Oh yeah, all right Take it easy baby Make it last all night She was an American girl It was kind of cold that night She stood alone on her balcony She could hear the cars roll by Out on 441 Like waves crashin' in the beach And for one desperate moment there He crept back in her memory God it's so painful Something that's so close And still so far out of reach Oh yeah, all right Take it easy baby Make it last all night She was an American girl This video was created from clips from the Diamond P video "Fabulous Floppers" and photos that I took of some of Jungle Jim's cars at 131 Dragway back in the '60s. The photos of Jungle Jim and Pam at 1:48, 1:53 and 1:59 are courtesy of Tom McCrea tmccrea. Photo at 2:36 is by Steve Scott. Other pictures are from unknown photographers.
