Porting and polishing

So ive got a few days off starting monday, and ill be parking the stang for a few days and doing some minor engine work. Initially it was just removing valve covers, cleaning, sanding, painting, and cleaning, however ive toyed with the idea of getting a used intake manifold from a junkyard, cleaning it, and then porting polishing it. Anyone had any experience with this? Ive gotta get some tools (electrical drill, varying grit bits, and something to use as a guide for how much i should take off to line up with the gasket/lower intake)

Re: Porting and polishing

It is not something you will do correctly with your 1st or 2nd or 3rd set of junk yard heads and intakes. You need carbide bits, stones, a die grinder, air compressor, etc. Electric drill won't give you good results.

A good reason why not everybody in the world is trying to hand p&p if you don't know what your porting/polishing you could make LESS power than stock.

That about covers it.
