I would think that David's Machine Ship could do it. It's tricky business though, you need an accurate burette to do it properly and you need to go a little bit at a time. They *should* be able to handle it though, you will just need to specify the final chamber volume you want.

Get them decked and that will increase your compression.

thats my plan, just not sure where to send them do have them done right, NAPA sent me to a guy in cleveland, that guy said he hasnt done VW heads in forever and isnt set up for it. so now im on the hunt for who can , that way i can ship them out if need be. once i get Kostya to let me know how much i need to have machined.
