(Admin feel free to move this thread to where it fits best.)
For those of you who want to pick up some power right at home, I'm putting a video series together on the tube, covering a lot of stuff the competition is tight lipped about. Doing a Briggs opposed twin in the series, but the rules apply to most other flatheads as well, OHV vids coming later.
I'm covering a lot of the 'why' as well as the 'how', and packing 35 years of experience into video form isnt easy- theyre long, drawn out and maybe boring at times, so grab a cup of coffee or a 6 pack and pull up a chair! This is the intro- watch em all!

I've been waiting for this for a while, will try the videos out, it's been a while since I've see a decent porting tutorial...

Awesome! Theres more than one way to skin a cat and nobody knows every little trick, so watching a bunch of different tutorials is probably a great idea!

Thanks for that! I agree with you, no matter how long we work at something, we never know it all. I like to watch lots of different points of view, with real experience leading the pack.
Thanks again!

Update:

After starting your video, I subscribed. I was happy to see the gray beard and the steady video.

Gotta say, I really like your "DIY" flowbench. Quite creative, making essentially a manometer to compare flow readings while working ports.

Thanks buddy! Wish there was a way to calculate actual CFM, but its still better than taking a shot in the dark. HIGHLY recommend folks build one, dont think it took 10 bucks in materials and a half hour haha.
It has proven to be very repeatable with two things in mind: 1- run a baseline each time you do a work session- the numbers change a slight bit from day to day (likely temp and weather), and 2- once in a while it will give a really weird 'number' as much as a full point different than it was. I think thats shop vac rpm related. I just walk away for a few minutes and let it cool down and re run the test, appears fine.
