well after drilling and tapping the head for the old school bolt pattern on the sy/ty intake, i decided to bolt it in place to see how all the port work in the intake manifold looked when everything is assembled.
long story short....... it sucks. i have seen a ton of pics of how other syty'ers do their intakes (similar to mine) and even more that dont do any port work at all. so i know it works with the big mismatch, and the poor line of sight created by all the extra material around the injector bung. iv seen how richard does his intakes and now i finally understand why. theres a big pinch point in the intake manifold where the injector bung is. line of sight is bad, and with the raised runner head, it becomes a LOT worse. i thought i removed a lot of material, but after looking at it assembled, i think i can do a lot better. probably gonna have to buy another carbide cutter thats really small. hopefully you guys can see what i mean by this pic. your looking down the intake port, and intao the head. theres a blueish LED light where the valve would be. if you look at the bottom of the lighted area, you can see a slight hump...... thats where i need to get more aggressive with the grinder.
