Polished Intake Manifold In Progress



I have improved on it since then but here's what it looked like near the end. I will add more pics later. Also included a pic of my port matching on the underside (which has also since been improved)

Re: Polished Intake Manifold In Progress

I agree that I should have. I started working on this as an afterthought. after porting my heads and each piece of the intake I was done grinding lol.

(edit: I only port-matched the heads, they were ported by another member on here)
