Milling the Head

So looking around for stuff to do to my car i stepped on one of my dad's specialties, Milling the head.

I'm just wondering if someone in here has done it, how much you got out, how's it working, etc.

My car's a 99 Sentra GXE Lmt. Ed. 1.6L

Thanks for the replies ! :thumbup:

What are you talking about, boring the cylinders over and using larger pistons or milling the head to raise compression?

Milling the heads, sorry "Me no speaka da english !"

Lol.
I personally think milling the heads is a band aid way of raising compression. What's more is our cars have a timing chain so depending on how much material is removed from the head you have to be able to take the slack out of the chain.

Honestly I'd say it's a waste unless you had all of the other mods. and were going to do head work at the same time!
