after months of procrastination i decided to actually post some info on results.
i didnt take many pictures of my handy work, but i got me a die grinder and made the manifolds and head match the gaskets, and polished up what i could. If you look, at ~6725 rpms, is the highest point where the MAP reads 37.0 psi before porting (post port has 82lb spring upgrade, larger fuel lobe, and balance shaft delete) and the loRes boost is 2 psi lower after the porting. soo. maybe helped?
also, there is a 5 psi difference at 2500 rpm, but it also looks the pre porting tune ramps the boost slower. ill get with my tuner and see if thats the tune, or if the exhaust if moving that much quicker.
