Throttle Body Port and Polish on a 2006 Chrysler 300
Throttle Body Port and Polish on a 2006 Chrysler 300. Turned out well, it was my first one ever done so it should go way easier next time. Car drove perfect, no issues at all. I didn't notice a horsepowerBoost but the throttle response is quicker for sure.

Cylinder Head 204 - Porting & Polishing
This is a first-generation 1992 1.6L Hyundai Elantra
small-combustion-chamber head. Thats what it is. It's a J1 Elantra
cylinder head. Good luck finding another one like it. (read more)...
In Cylinder Head 106 I talked about the mainstream porting theories as they
are discussed. We looked at a cylinder head that I have thousands of
dollars of professional work performed on, and a bone-stock
second-generation head that I didn't port.
In this video I just might do something you haven't seen done before. For
some, that may be uncomfortable. The port and polish job I perform here is
what I think will work best for my current build. This is not an extreme
killer port job. What will be different here is where port textures are
concerned, I will be following the advice of a reputable source that will
remain un-named. You're free to port yours differently than I do in this
video, and I give you that out, around the 20 minute marker.
The Hyundai is far from being an ultimate-performance build. It's a $400
box of scraps with nothing but time invested. It's perfect for this video.
My finished product WILL be an improvement over what I had. I don't yet
have access to a flow bench. I still have an achievement to un-lock. As
far as you should be concerned with the techniques I employ... without flow
numbers there is no evidence of what this will do, but we will gather lots
of info from dynp sessions and drag strip time slips. If I could test it on
a flow bench, I would.
There are MANY, and when I say many, I mean thousands of flame war
mongering pirates floating around on rough seas with a hair trigger cannon
finger itching to fire if you port a head any differently than what the
herd mentality says to do while porting a cylinder head. I cover the herd
mentality because it has merit. It's been tested. Tried and true. But I
don't follow it to the letter of the law. I'm definitely not here to
de-bunk it. I would port a cylinder head differently for each build based
on how that engine was used. There's an extremely valid reason why
relating to air speed. It's not the texture of a port that maximizes the
effect of fuel atomization, but the velocity of the air running through an
x or y sized valve. The driving factor in this is the piston speed. I'm
not going to give you the technical information, but will refer you to
information about the Lovell factor. There's a better description of this
in the links below, and even a calculator to help you find your engine's
Why the Lovell factor is important:
Lovell gas factor calculator:
Only people who have flow testing equipment know for sure what really works
and have the capability to produce a perfectly-matched port job for the
ultimate performance build. Those guys know the definition of ultimate,
and THEY are floating below the water Aegis-class submarines ready to blow
your comment up if you don't know what you're talking about. They don't
care if you're an armchair mechanic or a herd of pirates. I will say,
they're zoomed in pretty close on me right now, and I'm expecting to take a
few hits. My work will be tested based on Dyno and drag strip performance,
and the results will be posted here. Fortunately, those kinds of videos
are a WHOLE LOT EASIER TO MAKE!!!
STI 06 THROTTLE BODY PORTING
Spare 2-3 hours, handy with a dremmel? Increase throttlle response and gain
extra hp doing this mod on your WRX Sti...Suggest intially protecting top
of throttle plate with gaffa tape while porting throttle body, gaffa tape
coolant as well as vacuum holes and terminal plug areas before you start.
Knife edge WOT side of plate only and take care not to damage or nick edge
of throttle plate or idle speed will be affected. Don't port below throttle
plate or at the close off area. CRC unit before install and enjoy. And
don't rush it...
Throttle Body Hot Air Heat Exchanger Assembly 2011
Tommey and I have been talking about heat exchanger for intake throttle
body. Both of us understand that the intake air coming into the throttle
body must be at the optimal temperature for proper gasoline evaporation for
combustion. If the air temperature is cold it allows the gasoline liquid to
become a flamethrower out of the Exhaust system. To eliminate this flame throwing
affect the gasoline must be vaporize as much as possible entering into the

The Eastwood Engine Porting Kit can help your engine generate more power.
Watch the video.
When serious engine builders "blueprint" an engine, they'll "port" or
smooth-off rough head castings around the intake and Exhaust ports for improved, smoother air flow.
The engine can then "breathe" easier, resulting in greater power and

"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.
Port & Polish GM 5.3 Throttle Body
I've been porting and polishing throttle bodies for a while and thought I'd
share with the DIY people. I'm using a throttle body off of a 2005
silverado with a 5.3 motor. Of all the truck brands, GM has the largest
gains by doing this. I've also ported and polished TB's on the 5.7 Toyota
Tundra, the 4.7 Dodge, LS1 Corvette, and the Honda 4cly from a Civic Si.
Every time it has proved that this mod will improve your throttle response
and most vehicles MPG's improve 0.5-2 mpg. That may not sound like a lot,
but do the math next time you fill up!
Sorry if the video upload is poor. No wifi connection to my phone today :(
Cleaning Throttle Bodies
MotorWeek's Pat Goss explains how to clean throttle bodies including on
newer cars where there is no mechanical linkage to the gas pedal.
