Re: Warning to those port matching intakes
I was trying to decide whether to port the aluminum intake, or the chromed steel. I noticed the steel seems bigger, and I figured it would hold up better. If you're going to port the aluminum version, it might be a good idea to have the outside of it welded up to add some extra material to compensate for what you're taking out.
Sorry to hear that happened on a ride.
Honestly I'm not sure how much a bracket is going to help. I think if you thin the material out too much, it will fail no matter what.
