Roger, you've got a lot to learn about engines buddy

Hand porting heads is the way to go. Sure you can do an amazing job with a CNC machine, but a good port job will be finished by hand. There's no redneck engineering about it. A drill and a port/polish kit and a crap load of time is what it is.

Want to swap an NP242 or NP231 into your ZJ? Here's how:
