Did you clean up the valve pockets in the heads yourself?

Yeah I cleaned up the heads, amazing how much crap was in there. A lot of built up soot from egr and sharp edges. All I did was smooth everything out.

When I talked with geoff from colt cams about it he said his truck saw a drop in EGT and a noticeable gain in power. He says this is the biggest cam we can run before we run into valve clearance problems. When I started looking into the cost of this cam versus the OE replacement cam the price difference wasn't enough to make me buy the OE.

I bought a grinding stone kit from production tool supply and an air grinder from MAC tools with and extended shank, made it easier to control to do the porting. If you want I can get the part numer for the grinding stones and you can order it from production tool. It is a 50 piece kit and I was surprised at how long the stones lasted. I think I went thru 5 stones on the whole job.

You can also use those carbide bits on a die grinder...they make em short, long, coarse, fine...and for the narrow long 6.0 intake ports you gotta be able to get way down in there to make big big gains. Exhaust side short turn radii has some gains to be made, as well as intake opening...just make sure there's no oil and grease left in the port when you start grinding...its a magnet for the metal dust/shavings and when you fire the motor up it'll blow all that metal down into the cylinder. I've seen it done.

I've done some porting/pollishing in the past, so I've got the die grinder and burrs. I have a sandpaper roll-up set too. Pretty handy for getting the bumps smoothed out. The nice thing about direct injection is that you dont have to worry about making the ports too smooth
