Ok after seeing some posts I think there needs to be some clarification. Will, the runners on the S2 L67 match the Heads quite well. BillB can confirm this.

I was asking about the rough casting in the runners I was going to polish them smooth to the best of my abilities like in the inlet of the SC.

Well, if we were talking about an intake manifold with a carburetor on top, what I said would make perfect sense.

Olds..I was at a JY today (where the emblem came from) and looking at a S2 L67 missing upper and lower intakes. The gasket leaves very little space to consider doing anything with. Doesn't look like enough to port. In my own personal intake (in some of my sc porting pics) I am cleaning it gently as there is so little to work with.

All of my posts have correct spelling and proper punctuation; however, I don't guarantee the content.

Like I said I just want to clean the runners of the rough surface.
