Correct me if I am wrong but isn't the original intake made of plastic, is it possible to port plastic?

The gen 4's definately have the magnesium composite "plastic" manifold. I'm pretty sure it is too thin walled to port. I though the gen 3's had approximately the same manifold but I could be wrong.

I did not ask but I imagine thats its not legal for California, but what is.

Tearing into the top end, cam and heads, is not an option at this point. Maybe when it gets another 50,000 to 75,000 miles and it due for a rebuild I will lokk into that but not at this point.
