Default Ported and Polished LS3 Heads??

Is it worth the gains to port these heads say compared to the cathedral design?

NOPE. If a LS3 got a pair of TFS 235's and a PORTED FAST 102 along
with a 230/234 Cam with a good PRO tune he may very well hit 550 RWHP.
HINSON has a LS3 W TFS 235's and I think they were close. It would be a nice project thou I only know a few who did it.
