where abouts in adelaide are you?

I havent seen much in the way of power gains as the amount you need to take off to make a good difference is quite a bit. You might just want to fit an AU head gasket which is the same as shaving the head ~40 thou.

Anyway, cost of skimming a head is ~$60

oh - and if your looking for big numbers you dont bother shaving the head, you just put different pistons in to lift the CR.

as before mentioned, unless your aiming for massive figures..dont bother...

however, for economy and efficiency reasons its worth having the head cleaned up and polished, if its built up with heaps of s**t that can rob you of a bit of power...

Well the chicks run away from you more...

Why is it that bumping up the compression does very little for 6 cyl falcons?
