stock throttle body

What parts should be shaved off on the stock throttle body to port it out? Instead of buying a larger one, I would rather just do this.

Also when I port and polish my heads are there any important parts that i should tell the guy to get? I want to say i read something about the intake side is alright but there is some part on the exhaust side that can be taken off.

Any pictures or anything would be great. Just want to make sure my friend doesnt F*@# up my car hahah

well i didnt quite know and that isnt focus fanatics... so im going to go off i wouldnt of found it with the search.
Unless i used google which i could get a million different results with that and dont think its practical to search through all of those, when the very smart people here can answer this for me because thats what the forum is for. anyways... Not trying to be mean or anything. You must know what i mean?

so whats with the epoxy? I thought there were just some parts that could be taken off to get it to be larger? ya know?

The problem is that when you widen out the oval shaped hole, it breaks through on the outside of the throttle body because the wall is rather thin. The epoxy goes on the outside and prevents you from having a gaping hole in your throttle body.
