Well, it is kinda hard to port the runners unless you cut the intake apart. Maybe he really meant he gasket matched? Or maybe I'm missing something too.?
Whatever happened to the porting process where they forced the abrasive putty through the part? This was used on the SVT contour intake if I remember right.
its a 2001, not a 2000, theres really no porting you can dothe runners are pretty thin, i still dont see what he could have possibly have "ported" unless it was for a 65mm tb, in either case theres no way your getting any extra power out of it
Yeah, Extrude Honing, thanks llama. If I remember correctly they could use that process on anything that flowed air, gas, or liquid (As long as it was metal and not too thin). Seems like the practical application was to port the intake tract as one piece (TB, and manifold), I may even remember the head(s) being attached. It did wonders for turbo housings and impellers too.
