This is the first time I have done this on my own so bear with me. I have contacted all my local shops about getting my cylinder bored. The one I was gonna go with just had foot surgery and cant do it ( he does it hisself). The second guy I talked to said he sends his to Car Quest, I was wondering if they would know to relieve the exhaust side of my cylinder when they bore it? I have heard a lot of disaster stories about shops not doing this here lately. Most of the one's I heard about have been done by NAPA so I'm not sure what to do. Thanks guys

I know he's one of my options but I know if I send it to him I will want it ported and I dont really have the money! I dont even know how I would go about shipping it. I was trying to figure out if this was true about auto machine shops not knowing to relieve the exhaust side or something? I'm not really sure what you would call it. But if it's not a problem with them boring it I'm gonna have them do it, because this spring I plan on buying a whole knew motor and send it to him to work his magic on.

Maybe try asking around for good machine shops in the area. I have a good machinist, but I never let my cylinders go to the machine shop with out a piston. As long as they have the piston to fit, you should be alright. They will know to relieve it.

Thanks a lot guys for all the info. I actually found a shop maybe 15 minutes from my house. I called them earlier in the week and the lady said that they only did car motors(strictly drag schop)
