OK, then let me ask the next dumb question...

What bit or grit did you use on the die grinder?

Actually, Bill is right.
I was thinking die grinder and wrote dremel .......good catch Bill.
Also, if you're taking your manifolds off for porting, take an extra couple hours in the oven with some of the ceramic coating Bill has mentioned.
If you decide you don't want to do the porting yourself let me know. I have a set in now getting ported for Travis and I'll post pics of them when I get them back. This time around he'* porting the outlet of the front manifold, as well as welding up more metal on the front manifold runners prior to porting them so they can be better matched to the port size of the rears.
Price is still to be determined on these, but we're thinking right around $150, and that includes good dark grey ceramic coating (brushed on, then baked....not the cheap VHT spray on stuff).

The guy at the shop told me a while ago, but I cannot for the life of me remember the name.
He said it'* one of the best, just short of Jet Hot, which is what we're going to be using the front Tubular manifolds we're fabbing up (were supposed to be done last month, but it looks like he'll have a batch done in mid October.

I am also going into an exhaust shop tomorrow to get a price quote on a tubular front manifold for Series II/III'* along with having him take a peak at the TOGS and see how much to duplicate them.

The Ceramic coating I used (with great results) is from speedwaymotors.com, and can be read about here:
