Default Porting manifolds

First question: I still have the stock exhaust manifolds from my 98 SSEi and will they fit my 2000 SSEi?

Obvious next question: What is the process for porting these for the 2000 and what equipment will I need? Any tutorials that I overlooked?

From what I would understand you'd need to add metal to the bottom of the port to be able to open the port further..

I think its just as easy to get a PLOG from ZZP... I got tired of the Stocker and the Plog will flow better either way, but if you were to do that you'd want to skew the injectors to 2-3% more on the front bank than the rear with the Plog..

Pfft fine.

I was looking at the ZZP powerlog w/ rear ported manifold but will a w-body rear manifold fit my h-body? I somewhat remember Zoomer telling me no, but can't find the email.

Kyle, Jshelton54 is running a W-body rear manifold. It may or may not work on the 92-99, but I believe it will on the 2k and up. Or maybe it'* the H body mani that won't work on the W.

I think the W-body DP flange is an inch or two to the side of the H-body flange, so it would be a problem.

I'll have to ask Zoomer and Intense again to confirm this.
