Ported intake manifold

I'm having my studs done in mid-June along with ITP's RR kit and was wondering about buying a used 2003 intake manifold and having it ported. What do some of you big power guys think about this? Would there be much of a gain in doing this? I'm sure there is a benefit but I'm only interested in a power benefit. Also, if I did go through with it how much could I expect to pay to have them ported? Any ideas on that. Thanks for any input and opinions guys.

thanks. I also found some right and left exhaust manfolds for 50 bucks. same questions apply to those. If I did the exhaust manifolds alone and had them ported would it be worth it? opinions, input, and facts appreciated.

What does porting these actually do? just allow more airflow?

50 bones sounds like a steal!

I believe that's all it does is allow more airflow. 50 bucks is a deal I just don't wanna buy them and it cost 200 or 300 bucks to port. I'll call some places on monday and get prices. I can pay up to 150 to have them ported.

theres a company in so cal called extrudehone...way way better than a port and polish job. Not to expensive either from what I hear. I know its great in Gassers, don't know if same applies in a Diesel though.

David with the exhaust manifolds I think you would be better off having them extrude honed. I know theres big power in having that done..maybe not huge but more flow for sure. My friend did this to his exhaust manifold and since it was cast he wasnt worried about it breaking..WAY more flow too. I would even be interested in doing something like that..probably would make the turbo spool up faster too. You gotta call Jim bower at Extrude hone..hes the man to talk to 724-978-7211
