Re: ported&polished throttle bodies........... (ALLMOTORtt20)

you should never open the TB more than stock....that is the result of doing so, its happened to everyone that does it (power loss,you lose velocity), what gave you the idea to do such a thing...I'm not trying to be a pest if it sounds like it, I apologize if so.

Ok, so if porting is a bad idea, how about just polishing? Would that really do anything at all?

that would be of benefit with headwork, but since our heads dont move air well enough, stock....w/o headwork its a waste
