    Here's a really great book on home porting:

    http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Gas-...3970388&sr=8-1

    I read it and it helped me a great deal when I was porting my first engine. That was a 4 cyl though. 8 cyl will take a while. Just be patient and optimize without increasing port volume too much. A lot of that $1800 goes to the time it takes. Power to you!!!
