How to Package and Ship Cylinder Heads to MAPerformance

Sending in Your Heads for Porting and Polishing? Here is How! 

Cylinder Head Prep - We utilize a Serdi seat and guide machine that provides us with some of the industry's finest valve jobs. We not only cut seats for the non performance market, but have also designed specific cutters that we use in all our modern 4 valve heads. Every head is also vacuum checked after each seat is cut to ensure that no head leaves with a poor sealing valve. We would then typically set and adjust the installed valve tip height to our specs to ensure proper valve train geometry is maintained.

We also have a resurfacing machine that provides a superior RA, or finish, on both cast and aluminum blocks and heads, which is crucial for proper head gasket sealing in modern engines. Ours uses the CBN cutters and provides a superior finish to the older, multi-cutter systems that many shops still use.


Contact us today with your questions, as we're happy to answer them for you. Stay tuned to the MAPerformance blog as we continue to release great tech tip videos for all platforms throughout 2016!
