Pics of early 2000 intake manifold?

I finally found a smooth seam im from a 2000 to mount onto my 2002... I have to have it shipped so it will be here in a week or so... Question is does anyone have pics of before and after porting this intake manifold? I recently bought a 65mm throttle body so that end of porting is self explainatory, but wanted to port it on the lower end before I install it...I did a search and found plenty of pics of the actual im... But not of the port job... Also being that this Im is the one suggested for FI, how much does porting it weaken it? I've read that the 2000 manifold can handle something like 27# of boost which is more than I'm planning... Just wondering if it weakens it enough to where u sacrifice reliability? Also I purchased everything to convert to a svt header.. Gonna run no egr but waiting to install that when I get a tuner... So is the egr block off easy to do with it(im) on the car? Or should I wait and install everything at the same time? I kinda like doing one mod at a time to see what if any difference I notice... Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

Unless you have a million dollars worth of porting tools you are not going to be able to do much more than port directly under the TB and then port match exit to head. Or not much difference there. You pretty much cannot control porting deep inside runners themselves or butcher work if you attempt it.

When port-matched the early 2K still outflows the later Zetec IMs, even without full porting.

The early manifolds are one piece and have a rounded look to the runners, whereas the later manifolds were two pieces bonded together.

Yea I pretty much new I couldn't get deep into the runners... I was more wondering about exactly how much to take off on the head side? Being as its not on my car now and I will have to install it I figure I should proly port the places I can while I have it off... Being currently n/a if it even helps a tiny amount it's worth it, especially since I won't have down time... Do u happen to kno if it would be easier to do the egr block off with it off the car or is it just about the same with it on the car? I appreciate the info...

How big is your throttle body, must be over 65mm?

Have you run this IM with a throttle body yet? That isn't much material for the throttle body to seal against. There are some questionable area's around that port opening that may cause vacuum leaks. Specially around the IAC port area. If you have a high or bouncing idle, you know where to look for a vacuum leak!

The head side of the these intake manifolds doesn't require a hole lot of porting to match it up with the head. I actually left mine alone as it wasn't enough of a difference to warrant any porting. All I did was port match the TB to the intake and I was done.

Just a 65mm Focus Central TB. I haven't run it yet but I have the TB matched up to the intake. The outside of the intake is coated with epoxy to add strength.
