apexviii does them
shaner does them as well I think $125 for tb
oh you don't necessarily want to polish heads, it's good to have some turbulence in the head to mix air and fuel.

anyone ever deal with those ported and polished throttle bodys off of ebay where theres always a very, VERY well endowed hot chick holding the throttle body right between them makes me want to buy it everytime =) but you gotta send in a core for most of them. Im not sure if you have to. THey are stock throttle bodies that have been ported and polished and knife egded and all that hoopla.. Ill try and see if i can find a link
here we go http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/LS1-L...Q5fAccessories
sorry no hot chick

lol yeah, she was very good at "presentations"
yeah i saw in the bids that you pay the whole bid and then get your core value back when you send in your old TB with in like 30 days or somthin glike that. For $50 after core return, i guess thats not too bad. At least you get your product first. How good is a ported and polished stock TB anyway? is it worth it? at least for $100 or less

So until i make the big jump to the fast intake, a ported throttle body would be a "next step" option for now. I got a SLP Mass Airflow sensor, those are at i believe 85mm and then the stock throttle bodys are at 75 or 78mm? whats the stock intake manifolds size on ls1's and ls6's?

no need for the bigger maf, stock intake is 78.
