"How To" Port polish an intake manifold
In this video I show you how to port polish an intake manifold. Remember to wear your safety gear and take your time. The intake itself took roughly 2 hours to polish. Removal of the head is recommended before any grinding or polishing to ensure none of the filings make it into the cylinder bore and cause damage to the cylinder walls.

Well it's finally over, I'm able to walk away from this truck for a while and hopefully do some easier stuff for the next few weeks. Taking off the intake manifold was a big help as you can see so if your thinking about doing this job I would highly recommend removing the intake before removal.
