    This is my 1st time doing any thing like this. Here are a few pics of me P&Ping a stock intake plenum.
    You ask why would you port a stocker? Well from what I have read you can get pretty good gains from it and if P&P right it will out flow a C&L. Heres some pics of about 3 hours messin with it. Its a good start. If you have any info or tips feel free to let me know. I will be doing a full write up on this and sending it to the mods on here to so maybe they can make it a sticky.

    Polishing parts on the intake side of the combustion chamber is ancient 1960's technology. I'm not gonna get into the real technical stuff, but a slightly rough intake tract will flow better than one that is polished smooth.

    im working on the same project. i havent started on the upper intake yet because i picked up the wrong flex shaft for my dremel... taking care of that tomorrow. if i had my camera i'd show you a picture of the halfshafted, ported and polished throttle body (approx. 69mm's now) i finished a few days ago ;D

    also why did you remove the hump at the back of the plenum. is that hump not needed for moving air around that port? ive never seen the inside of an aftermarket so i dont know :dunno:
