Remember one thing, if you take too much off, the next time you blow a gasket you may have to throw the head away.

I have got a stock ef engine, and hopefully be on the dyno tomorrow or friday so U can compare the stock kw to mine, I bet there will be hardly any gain at all.

I had the head shaved on my eb 20thou and felt absolutely no difference at all, its very over-rated as far as im concerned. But it may be helpful if ur pulling some serious numbers, on a street car tho, nah mate dont bother
