Who has experience with TEA ported heads?

I’m in the process of gearing up for a full build for my 70 sportsroof. The car will be 408 powered, with a close ratio toploader and 3:70 gears out back. It’ll be 99% street, with occasional conflicts at stoplights. Steel wheels with street tires, nothing sticky.

My question is surrounding my heads. I have a pair of first generation Twisted Wedges that are machine shop fresh. They were the style with pedestal mounts, and when I bought them, had them converted to mechanical style rockers. I really like these heads due to the fact that aside from being aluminum, there’s no external way to tell what they are. The early heads didn’t have the ball milled trickflow script cut into the ends. I’d like to have them CNC ported to take advantage of the cubes, and foxbody guys have good things to say about TEA or total engine airflow. Has anyone here used their services, and how did you like the result?

I’ll also be hitting Ed Curtis for a custom ground hydraulic roller.

I've never used either but if i was doing it you can't go wrong with Ed & TEA for cam & head porting, especially TFS, they probably do those all day long.

Does TEA still have a CNC program for the 1st generation heads?
I havent heard of TEA doing "used" heads in a while. they are essentially owned by TFS now.
