Thanks. I'm gonna try and have this ready to roll for spring. Luckily for me I now have a garage and since school will be out in a few weeks I plan on having the grinding done by january and then tanked and a valve job by the end of january. I think i need to run different retainers (Rather than stock) if i run the eibach dual valve springs so I probably wont do that at this moment in time. I'm also gonna get a p5 intake manifold and run my vris solenoids on it to activate the butterflies then port and polish that. Between the head and the intake manifold this thing should breath really well. My only hope is that when I mash it from a start it doesnt drop on its face from a lack of low end torque. I know high end with this set up should be pretty good.

I am starting to get a laundry list of stuff done to my car. Does that make it fast? No! Does that mean i spent too much money on a toy? Maybe. Do i have fun every time i jump in my car and drive? Hell yes.

I just scored an authentic fsze intake manifold off of eBay minus the fuel rail and tb for $17.50 Shipped! Now that's my kind of deal.

I've always said that the biggest thing that holds the power back on the FS is the Intake manifold, cams, pistons and rods. Get rid of those 4 and you'll make some power. Get a set of 11:5 pistons with a custom set of cams and make your short runner intake manifold and you will be making better power than the KLZE.

Still got some cleaning to do on this set of bowls but most the burrs are gone and I've opened up the channels to flow a little smoother by making the channels a little more smooth.... I feel like I'm getting way better and maybe even getting a little faster. If I can only figure out how to remove all that build up.

here is a few threads I've been reading for those interested in pursuing porting on thier own head.

the team integra link and the msprotege link are really informative.

Got all the material out of the exhaust ports. Now on to smoothing the rough spots and polishing the exhaust side and making it look pretty. Can't wait for my fsze intake to arrive.

I was told by the guy helping me with this that the intake side is done and the exhaust is pretty close aside from "polishing". He said don't worry about the rough look in the intake port.
He told me then to work on the combustion chamber by removing the step you can see and smoothing it then putting a small radius on the spark plug hole and making the valve seats flush with the top of the chamber. I may not do the latter because I sure don't wanna mess up the valve seats and be [shizzle] out of luck on all this work.

No manifold for me. I got banned from the seller pending an eBay investigation of me apparently violating rules. I don't know what I did wrong. Anyways gonna get intake and tb spacers around Christmas and possibly a 98+ 626 manifold instead port that and start on reassembly. Need to get the head decked .010" and a valve job. I did get it cleaned although my dishwasher was a bitch to clean and sanitize after! Don't do that... lol

Picking up a stock 93 intake to port tomorrow. Gotta start looking into getting a now fuel pump. Price soit a valve job and head resurface and looking between $180 Andy $280 to get done. Then $120 for a head gasket kit and $80 for a cosmetic head gasket. So close to getting in. I'm gonna also get intake and tb spacers for Christmas from jayracing or outlaw engineering. Next week I'm also putting in the exhaust cam on the intake side.

I'm gonna do the egr block off on this manifold. It looks like the egr is a huge contributed to gumming things up. It'll keep my engine cleaner and since I don't have emissions here I don't think I'll have to worry. One port done. When I finish this I'll move on to hour glossing the throttle body. I'm getting a lot better and much faster!

And "done" about 2.5 hours and the manifold is matched for the head. All of the openings are within .05" of another. Not bad for a noob.... with some care I can get them perfect. I have a pair of mititoyo calipers by the way. Otherwise I'd just be eyeballing it and that wouldn't get me very far.
