This is probably a dumb a** question to alot of you but I need to ask it. What specifically is porting and polishing? And can it be dont to my genIV vulcan with the plastic upper intake? Also, where would I take it to get done? Again, I realize it may sound like a dumb question but I need to ask it in hopes of possibly getting it done this summer when I have some money.

You're right. That is a dumb a** question!

j/k



Port and Polish is done on metallic intakes. Porting increases the inner diameter of the intake. Polishing removes the rough, inconsistent surface created by the molding process.

This allows the engine to breathe easier. More air = more power.

Plastic intakes cannot be ported or polished. Actually, you could probably do both, but porting would greatly weaken the intake, and polishing is unneccessary as the plastics are smooth already.
