Porting & Polishing Manifold

I was wondering if there would be any benefit to porting out & polishing my stock manifold? If not porting out what about polishing?

On NFS it's easy, just have some cash on hand and then press A.......LOL

In real life, all the time, effort, and money you'd spend on trying to make a stock unit better, just isn't worth it IMO.

If you want performance upgrades, you have to have performance parts.....not stock. I'm no expert on this by any means, but just IMO, it sounds silly to port and polish a DD Ranger.

ya true. I was just getting excited because I have my whole exhaust and headers off, so I was thinking what could I do. But your probably right. I think I'm just going to paint my manifolds and call it good

I didn't know you had them off already. I just figured all the hassle and such of getting them off and then doing it on the stockers wouldn't be worth it. If you can do it yourself or know someone who can for next to nothing, I say give it a go.
