Most engines that are ported have RPM limits at 6,500 or higher. The diesel engine can muster around 4,800. Porting might pick up 5hp or a bit more but doubt that there would be any real improvrment. THERE is a company called Extrude hone that would do the head & intake and that might get you 10 more hp.
