Yah Know If Yah Trying To Make Me Look Bad Ovously When You Port You Make A Surface Differnt Surfaces If Theres Fuel Flowing Thur It You Want It Not To Be Polished And To Have A Rougher Surface

you would want the smoothest surface possible because all liquids travel in the path of least resistance making the ports rough would increase turbulence, thus decreasing HP but you wont gain much of anything by polishing..

uh hum... actually you do want a lil bit of turbulance to atomize the fuel efficiently. Smooth as hell exhaust tho.

yes sure the main reason i made that surface rough becuase if the full hit a smooth surface it will turn to droplets and not a vapor and thats what causes to blow up your intake manifold from No2 aspecialy so thats the main reason for porting

I believe ya if you did. It's just that arbitrarily removing metal from ports can make things worse rather than better. They do look good.
