The money shot would be the ports and chamber with GOOD lighting, not flash and not weak 60w bulb.

porting, like finishing concrete requires an eye for it. You have it or you don't regardless how many years you work at it. Years ago locals bought some of his porting and it looked pretty bad. Ed is gifted, just not with a grinder from what I've seen. I still look at what he has been doing including SRT 4 related work. He also brought up things like porting the oil pump hole in the block, I've added to that with porting the water pump housing. His talks on oil and filter choices are good to listen to as well. But from what I've seen I don't think he can run a grinder lol.

The other thing in question is the slider cam, which most of the time are chewed up. So not much to go on in this photo. Take out the valves and show us the chambers and the ports, then we can give you a better "guess". Otherwise it is past experiance and looking at what looks like a stock head with a slider cam...

I was slow to posting lol.

But you just posted up more pictures than show nothing really, top and front is meaningless. It could be a big valve ported head or stock from any of those photos

Was done with my iPhone (easiest and quickest)..ill try and get some better pics with my SLR cam in the next day or so (if needed).

So other than my poor photography can you offer any additional feedback?

Cheers

mods to heads have a lot more to do with age, a head from the 90s may not have much done vs one 5 years old

Ed doesn't port all his heads. I've known him and his head porting guy for years. Ed had several versions depending on what class if any you were racing. some classes were only allowed to gasket match and could not go deeper than a couple of inches or whatever the rule, and others more porting allowed. I have seen some big valve street heads that were flat out awesome. I do beleive that ed marked his heads, do you see any numbers or markings? and like some one asked, what make you think it came from Ed Peters?

The guy I bought 589 provided me with this additional head (along with turbo) and told me it was an Ed Peters

only way to really know how good it is would be to take it to a local shop with a flowbench and have checked.

yes to know exactly how good and how even it flows on all 4 cylinders. But you can see whether or not it's cut right looking at it, being a 782.

That's what the end game was going to be. I have the bottom end being redone with forged pistons, studding main etc. The original head was cracked and I received this Ed Peters head when I bought 589.
Looking for some modest HP gains and from what I have read, the EP head is a performance head adding HP. Any suggestions on what I should do to this head to gain some HP?
Not sure what kind of cam I have or if it is worth investing $ into a new cam. Would money be well spent porting and polishing?
