And I've herd two things about intake ports one is to make them big and smooth to flow as much air as possible and the other is to make them big bit leave them rough to atomize the fuel better so I decided to polish them and leave a ring about a half inch wide just to help out

But that would also depend on the spray pattern and characteristics of the injectors

With boost you'll make some nice power. With the intake ports I've always heard to leave them rough also. Do you have a built bottom end, and what type of fuel system are you running? With a stock bottom end your limited to about 250hp with a stock fuel system you can get up to 350hp if I remember right? You'll need a return style fuel system to make big power.
