First off,I'm deciding on whether or not I should port out my TB. Is it worth it? Some people say its like or even better than after market,is this true? I also heard that the intake manifold can be ported,is this true? Is it worth it? Any answers would be great! Thanks

its the best bang for the buck if you port your TB, best 4 bucks you'll ever lay down.

you can port an intake mani but its best to port the 2000 version of it.

I second that you should port your throttle body. It's super easy, and for the couple of bucks for epoxy, and the 2 hours it'll take it's way worth it

Awsome,thanks for that write up. Which dremel piece would I be using? How long does it take to port it and how long should I let it cure?

I used the angled (but not pointy) burr bit. Took a couple hours. I did not need epoxy for mine, but mine is different.

i just used the cylindrical sanding bit, it went right through the plastic without a problem, i had a high idle after doing it so i adjusted the idle screw deal, and fixed that, it's been a month or so with no problems, some people said adjusting the screw would throw a cell but it hasn't happend. i think i put it back where it needed to be.
