Red face Keggar Mod, Gasket Matching Intake/Heads this Weekend.

This weekend Im going to take on the task of modding my stock intake manifold. Im going to reduce the intake runners and If I dont screw anything major up Ill slightly port and gasket match the head intake ports to intake manifold, slightly open up the exhaust ports, smooth out the bowls and finish'em up with a good polishing. Im a bit nervous because this would be the first time I remove my heads (any heads for that matter). Trucks not being used and its a mod Ive been wanting to do for a few years now. Ive done a bit of research and seen it done a couple times, so overall im confident Ill be able to disasemble, moddify and reasemble with no problem. As for getting my valves done Ill have to wait till next time.. $$$

Oh yeah almost forgot the "no pics, it never happend" rule.
Drop your opinions or advice if you got'em

The old saying goes you never know if you can do it unless you try. I have been LUCKY because everything tends to turn out great. I am sure your work will turn out great also. Hurry up already, I want to see your work.
