    I don't know of a local shop with a flow bench. I do have some experience with ported heads though, not Mini but air cooled VW. I haven't ported my own either, I have had friends who did, you get what you pay for. Usually one heck of a bog or flat spot in one or two RPM ranges. I have bought ported heads from shops specializing in porting heads and got the horsepower I paid for. Shops who do that kind of work usually have some closely guarded tricks up their sleeves.

      Don't Know Where You Live Or How Quickly You Need The Head, But There Is A Shop In Tacoma. The Guy Does A Lot Of Head Work And Has A Good Rep, But Is Usually Overloaded. He Knows Minis, Has One That He Built For Autocrossing. Can't Remember The Shop, Though. If You Are Interested, Call Delta Camshaft In Tacoma. They Should Be Able To Give You A Name And Phone Number.
