Yet another ported manifold project with pics

This forum has a wealth of information, a little too much for mod-junkies. After a lot of reading, I decided that I HAD to tear apart my manifold. There are plenty of threads on how to do this but the pics helped me the most, so I thought I would post my pics...

Just cut open:




Both Sides:



Holy obstructions batman!


Gutted, ported, countersinks:


I was concerned about warping during the TIG welding, so I welded up a jig made out of 1/4" steel with some angle iron. Its totally overbuilt, but there is no way the mani will warp now. It will also be used for pressure testing after I weld it up. Once the welding is done, I will take more pics of the jig if any one is interested.

First side bolted up:


All bolted up:


All ready to weld:



Added the more pics:






Going in:



Hope these pics can help people like others helped me... If you have any questions lmk.

So how much does the ported manifold help? has anyone gotten any real data yet. Most of the threads I have read about this have not went into detail about how much power you pick up.

I've heard from a few people they gained 40ish hp with no dyno graph

Egts drop near 125-150 at wot from what I have seen and many others
With a nice seat of the pants feeling at wide open throttle.

It's very worth it.
