My Ported and Polished Intake Manifold Build Thread! PIC HEAVY!!

Ok as the title states this is going to be my step by step build thread on my port and polish job for my intake manifold. This is not going to be a tutorial so to speak just a follow along type thread lol. I will probably ask for advice and what not to see what all everyone else has done or what has worked for them. But for now here are some pictures!!

Just want to say THANKS to Matt aka sinner6.0 on here. I picked up this manifold from him yesterday after I got off work. Thanks again buddy!

Before.



Like any good plastic surgeon I marked out all of my cut lines lol.









Now for the good stuff. The real carnage.

BTW if your considering tackling this yourself it is pretty labor intensive to simply cut it apart. I actually burned up my good Dewalt 4" grinder cutting most of this apart (good thing I got it on Amazon lol I get free returns). So then I had to resort to my Milwaukee SawZall to finish it.

Here is the EGR stuff cut off of the intake. I will weld a block off plate on the manifold in place of this garbage.









Bottom half with the EGR crap cut out.



Here is the manifold split. Top Side.













Here is the bottom side.













Here is the aftermath. lol.





What do you guys think? LOL this is a LOT of work. Also this manifold appeared to be pretty darn clean before I cut it apart. Just goes to show that these things get REALLY dirty inside and must be VERY hard to get most of the crud out. Anyways let me know what you think and if you have any tips post them up!

LOL Hopefully I will finish it. it really took me about 2 hours to cut that sucker in half. When you hear people say that these are labor intensive they aren't kidding!!

I bet that $1,200 for a gogo is sounding better and better right about now lol.
And I'm gunna go ahead and point out the elephant in the room, you could have been almost half way done with you bpd oil cooler by now!

I do have a question about the intake tho....how are you going to seal the bolt holes? I guess the gasket would take care of the bottom but what about the top? Rubber washer maybe.

That's exactly what I was curious about..
