    Hello Everyone,

    Ill be planning on Porting my Boss Manifold. Can anyone provide me some tips and specific bits needed? Debating whether or not I should port it my self or have it done professionally.

    Also, when sanding and all the residue goes inside the manifold. How do we get all that residue and extra material out after?

    I did mine in my garage. Never ported anything before. Take your time and remember you can always take more off but can never put it back on. I used a basic home depot dremel kit with sanding rolls. I cleaned it with lots of brake clean. I think it took maybe 10 hours? 2 hours a night for a week.

    I'd just have it done professionally. Bret Barber does a great job. I've seen too many DIYers who don't know what they're doing butcher their manifolds.

    +1 A properly ported intake will add some HP but do it wrong and you would have been better off not porting it.

    I did mine in about 10 hours as well. Except I didn't really port mine... just smoothed it out. Grab a basic dremel kit and go slow! Clean it with brake cleaner and compressed air.
