Re: Going to start my port and polish of my intake tonight

when epoxing the manifold back togather...what kind of postive pressure would it take before epoxy fails and the manifold blows apart at the seam?

i donno, but i don't like that idea at all... take it from an ex 96gt owner, exploding intakes are not fun at all!

And started the process. I need to go out and get a little rougher grit set of stones for my dremel so I will post more later. This is going to take a while....
The numbers you see are the port plug part # Prefix and Suffix. You'll need to get the basic part # (middle #) to complete it. Your local Ford guy should have it, might be the same "basic #" as the manifold.

I'd try aluminum-oxide sanding drums/ cones or a rotary file/ double-cut bit to rough it out. Just a thought.

Re: Going to start my port and polish of my intake tonight

Hey, I've been reading this thread over and over for a few months now and I finally got the nerve to tackle it.
For the past 1 1/2 hours I've been disassemblying my intake and finally got the lower intake out. What a pain ERG, bah.

Anyway, I see that people have been epoxying the lower back together. What's everyone's opinion on that? Weld or epoxy? I'll start the grinding tomorrow and the rest of the week.

Re: Going to start my port and polish of my intake tonight

Why do you do epoxy work on the bottom side where the plugs are? For better flow eliminating sharp edges?

Re: Going to start my port and polish of my intake tonight

Seems like 120 does a good job. Flap wheels are next when I chop off the bottom..

^^I figured as much.
All my airtools are out of commission until I get a new compressor.
