Ljk619 is an unknown quantity at this point
I would recommend getting it (p&p) done professionally, but since it's just a second head i guess you could just try to have fun. Start off with the stone head grinders because they don't take too much off at once compared to the carbide heads. Go slowly, and basically have fun. But remember taking off more doesn't always mean better flow, if you happened to cut incorrectly also, it could interrupt air flow instead of helping it flow smoother. Use lube while cutting or else you could get hot spots and those just tend to chunk out.
