Big Block Cyl. Head Porting Advice Needed

Can anyone recommend a competent cylinder head porting shop? I would like to find one that has experience with porting big block chevy heads for use in trucks. I know there are plenty of shops out there that do heads for race cars but I'm not as concerned about peak HP as I am torque. I'm afraid I might not get what I want if I use a shop that does the majority of its work on race heads. Thanks!

Not sure what shop to suggest but stay with the oval ports. Don't do the rectangle or peanut ports. If your gasket match the heads to the intake and smooth the bowl area, it should give you both HP and torque. Any head shop should be able to do this for you to get you the torque you want.
