    Porting and Polishing T/B

    Is there any way possible to port and polish your throttle body by yourself? Or is it best to let a LS1 shop or something like that to do it for you? How much would it cost to port and polish the LS1 T/B?

    Thanks,
    RyAn

    its not that hard to port it yourself. just dont port near the tb blade and make sure the epoxy is dried before you install it. you can also polish the blade and smooth edges along with the bump stop mod.
