There are some details in the old Vizard Speedsport book - Theory and practice of cylinder head modification.

or if you like real photographic cross-sections:

I have a picture of a cross section sport head on my phone. Will try and load it up if I remeber. When I asked about porting in the members only section I didn't get a huge response. All I have done is bored through the exhaust ports at 22mm and 25mm down the inlet ports, the aim was then to remove guides and blend it in.
