Default port and polish question

Ok, now I know a lot of about port and polishing. I've read all the threads, I've read websites, seen dynos, etc. The thing that I still don't understand is when port and polishing your exhaust manifold how deep into it do you go? Do you have to port the entire length of the pipe? only the first 2,3,or 4 inches?

Second question...If you PnP the exhaust manifold, should you PnP the exhaust oulets on the block? Would that be hard to do if you had access to a lift?

Thanks for the help.

-Eddie

Go as deep as you can, the deeper the better.

Porting the block is a BAD idea for 99.985% of people.

LMAO!

I'll attempt to get back on the subject here. There might be some kind of extension you can get for your tool. I'll look in Lowe's today when I go in.

Who is the 0.015% of people that it's good for?

its a bad idea for people to try to do it themselves he means. its a good idea for everybody to have it done for them though.

He means that it is really easy to mess up when porting your heads and ruin them. They are a lot more expensive than manifolds. You should know what you are doing when you try to do the heads, instead of hacking away in there. The manifolds are easier and a little more forgiving of a SMALL "oops" And also, Synth said he thinks you can get an extenstion for your tool so you can go deeper. That was hilarious.

heh, alright, good info guys, thanks alot. I was thinking i would try to port the block just because I have a lift and a circular grinding/cutting air tool accessible to me so I can get under the car easy enough but seeing as how i've never ported anything I wouldn't know how big to go or any other seemingly important aspects.
