How much can you safely angle mill a 289 head? They are early '69 2 brrl heads with semi-open chambers. Would like to be able to mill off the open area since these heads have shown to flow better than the closed chamber 289/302 heads that I have..

I have milled 289 heads as much as .100, but I cannot understand why you would want to use them. Why not just get some Darts or 351W's castings?

This set of heads have had a lot of work done to them over the years.. Everything except milling. None of the stock Windsor heads come close to these..(205/155 cfm @.500).

Thanks,
Dan
