Default Some Porting

Had some free time this weekend and was up at the Bonnevilla, so I did something in preparation of my engine pull and cam change. Here'* some pics of my port and . Phone cam quality. Can see a difference in just the color.

Should add just a little bit. There was a little bump on the runner that did not need to be there. The smoothing will defiantly keep carbon from sticking to it.

That'* looking good. Shutting down the EGR will really help keep the carbon down.

Turning it off is easy, next time your by Bill, just have it set the turn on temp to 284*, and it'* done.
