I pulled off my turbo manifold because Jeff and I are going to port the wastegate tomorrow and found my exhaust ports on the head were very dirty. Well not anymore bitches!

Took about an hour. Used 60 grit sanding dremel attachment. Then the abrasive disc. Then polished with a wire wheel. On to making a manifold.

What did you do to keep debris from falling into the cylinders?

I kept the valves closed while i worked on them . Then after i was done took the air compressor and blew the crap out of them. I rotated the crank each time so that the valves were fully sealed.

I think since I smoothed out the casting and polished the port, the air will flow better than a stock head. I know it won't stay exaclty like that though.

I would definitely try on a junk head to practice. I just felt comfortable and went with it. Make sure the valves fully seated and plug the other 3 holes grind sand polish compressor air. Rinse and repeat.
