Default Mod motor heads/cams

With the new 3 valve motors, anyone here done some head work and/or swapped the cams yet? I'm really wanting to see how these breathe in comparison to the 2V and 4V stuff.

I've seen a few companies advertise they're grinding cams, one stating they have billet blanks as well.

That was supposed to be at the rear wheels.

That number is pretty good considering most H/C bolt on 2v 4.6's wont do much past 300rwhp.

I spoke with Patriot Performance, they are developing ported 3V heads right now. Should be available sometime this year, probably late in the year.

There have been good results on Lightnings with their stuff.
