Can't really tell from the pic but did you smooth the inlets to a mirror finish cos i heard you should keep them abit rough to stop the fuel condensing in them.
I thought inlets should be left slightly rough and exhausts should be polished to a mirror finish. I might be wrong and if i am im sure someone will put me straight Big grin

Looking good tho mate wish i could afford some TB's i think they look and sound the dogs watsits!

See i heard the opposite. i have been told that polishing the exhaust ports to a mirror finish results in less carbon deposits and smoother airflow.

Maybe on the exshaust, but for the inlets it needs to be matt as it causes turbulance in the air

Would be a shame not to match the ports as you have the head off. Offer up a gasket and secure it with a couple of bolts. Then scibe around the port, then remove the gasket and take away the excess material with a die grinder/dremmel to the scribed line and you will have done a perfect job of matching the head to the manifold. (This wants to be done on the inlet and the exhaust) Cool

You want the inlets to be rough [a normal cast finish would do] to promote turbulent air-flow.

This helps mix the inlet charge and atomise the fuel properly. It needs to be well mixed otherwise you get lean/rich pockets in the intake charge rather than a uniform mix of air and fuel. This can cause localised det and generally a poor burn.

The exhausts should be smooth to promote laminar air-flow
