    Porting/polishing is always a good thing even on alot of new parts. I actually just read a thread with a FAST intake that was ported, this is a brand new after market intake that is getting ported. There is always room for improvement on most parts. If you've ever seen a new intake or heads there is usually alot of material built up inside the port that affect the air/fuel flow in a bad way. The tb is mostly ported to make it bigger alowing more air in. There usually pretty smooth but you can make the smoother by porting polishing.

    Porting the MAF is probably not a good idea, but the heads, TB and intake result in great HP gains.
    People have had a lot of problems from porting the stock MAFs.

    That's up to you. Usually its kinda pricey to have someone do it, its not the best bang for the buck mod. You could easily do a decent job yourself if you have the time. Do some research on the net about porting and go at it.
