    Polished plenum?

    Hey guys I sold my blazer a while back and i'm looking at another one now. Its got a 4.3 votech and I was wondering if anyone has polished the upper intake plenum part? if so can i see pics and how hard is it to do? thanx

    Also does anyone know the horsepower rating on a 92-93 vortech?

    normally you wouldnt polish intake parts, you want to finish intake surfaces up to 80 grit. Although even just port matching an intake doesnt really make a noticeable gain...
