Is porting the stock manifold really worth it? and if so, what's the best way to do it?

Personally I think its silly, you can sit and screw around with it for awhile trying not to punch thru the plastic. In the end its only 1 or maybe 2 hp at the most.

If you are talking about a 2000 intake that is. Anything else is a waste of time.

Wouldnt a ported intake mani and ported throttle body, go good with an intake? They sell the 2000 ported intake mani on focus trends...Is that a waste of money if your tying to complete your inake system.

Additional hand porting on the 2000 manifold is not necessary, shall I say it 5 more times?

Focus mike, what the hell are you talking about? If you don't know whats going on don't butt in.

Focus mike, you say head work. What kind of head work are you talking about? Are you planning to get a ported head? I've talked to mcnews bout this shyt before actually (except the 2000 ported intake manifold). Focal says it is pointless SO IT IS POINTLESS, and don't ask about the FR intake manifold because you shouldn't even think about that untill your making more power, maybe up to 200 hp, besides its gonna be hassle to even get it put on if u did get the FR mani.

I just purchased a Volant intake (from eurozx3) and a ProFlo MAF. I am wondering if it is necessary or should I say worth it to spend another couple hundred on a Ported 2000 Intake Manifold. I am not going to do any hand porting.

Is it necessary or again worth it to add larger fuel injectors? If so, what size?

OKAY, I all ready asked focal this and he said it is not worth the money or the time to buy or port the 2000 intake manifold. Don't waste your time or money!

and fliphandywork? what are your mods?

The way that I interpreted it was as follows: The ported 2000 intake manifold is a good mod. However, it is not wise or necessary to do any further hand porting. I could be wrong.

hmmm well, you could get bigger fuel injectors. The stock ones are 19 and fuel flow is important. Maybe 24 lb or 30 lb... maybe focal can help u out a little more.
