Very nice.

Question- on the top of the top photo is the short side radius. Is this smoothed and round as well? The reason I am asking is this is the place where I find most of the improvement in head flow. Do you find the same thing?

To clarify, if the port size is not increased I have found something like 95% of the flow improvement is just from smoothing out the short side radius. This increase is usually almost 20% when the radius is sharp. I understand that making the port bigger will also increase the maximum port capabillity, the flow will be larger but if the short side radius is still sharp you will be about 20 % below achievable flow.
