Hi Guy's me again

On the weekend my mate and i did a Port and polish on the BA... i've notice considerable difference in acceleration.

Should i expect a big difference in Kw's or is it only 5kw difference?

Cheers

Josh

Ported and Polished.

Throttle Body,
Air Intake Manifold... well he had ported and polished a few other things but by that stage i had passed out... might have also been the fact that it was 4 in the morning when we were doing all this :|

wouldnt "polishing" or smoothing out the intake be a bad thing, doest the air need turbulance for the motor to work effectivly?

I believe the ba head needs as much porting that it can get.From my maths in the past it flows way too fast for peak power, but perfect for peak torque.
