    I did it with just a air grinder and attachements. I took off all ridges and just made them nice and smooth. then went back for a nice super shiney almost mirror finish.
    dont know how much of a difference it made, but I know there arent really any surfaces for carbon of gunk to cling to so it should stay clean for a while.

    like I said before, Only enough to take off any ridges/casting marks, then to get it to a high polish.

    If you have the machine at your house, why would you do it that way, is the real question?

    I just used a dremel (or 2) and quite a bit of the larger size sanding drums, sure it took a while, but it was easy to make sure I did not go to far, or out of round.

    +2 on the Dremel tool. Sanding drums and polishing wheels (the likes of emery cloth) will do the job.

    Im doing it...well starting tomorrow. Don't take off too much, you have to be careful, look where the valve stem slides in, for the intake side so obviously don't hit that... and as 84 p-type said...just take off the ridges, its more polish than port, you are getting rid of the "casting turds" then polishing it, I find if you run your finger along a intake port, then do some "grinding" or get rid of the casting ridges or turds then polish it obviously, then feel it again....smoother the better air flows better when the passage is smooth, so stay on the safe side, just get rid of the ridges, then polish get all the 20+ year old grime outta there.
