rpms on the dremel are going to be dictated by what bits you use. thge dremel brand bits should be rated with an rpm range

I have fineshed porting, as far as I feel I need to go, I took off quite a bit of metal, and Now I am getting ready to polish it, nice and shiny, (mabey....)
This is with it being sanded with the fine grit sandpaper, untill the paper blew up in my face, and scared the CRAP OUT OF ME, ALWAYS WEAR SAFTEY GLASSES, I stupidy had them over my head, but luckily with my ADD I was able to turn my head and close my eyes before damage was done... AND YES I WAS USING THE CORRECT SPEED!!!! I even double checked in my manuel after it blew!!!
Anyways I will post more pics when I get to polishing, OH! and my dremel has some balancing issues, whenever I put a large stone on it, it vibrates crazyly, so i am going to buy a new coilet to see if mine is bent and if its not, well, Dremel owes me a new tool!!!!! I hate this crap!

If you are looking this thread up for info on porting, DO NOT GRIND the turbine area, doing so can be hazardous, I used a stiff wire brush on my dremel to remove the excess exhaust buildup and thats it.
The stuff at the very end I cant get to, but it will definately be better than before.

yours looks more polished down than my exhaust ports on mt spfi heads. looks good!
Posted 22 July 2007 - 12:02 AM
and I'm not close to done yet... Finally I get some better pictures, I think I am figuring the camera out....
Posted 22 July 2007 - 01:13 AM
the stuff you see in the back is the actual compound itself after it has been applied, It is extreemly difficult to remove but it was well worth it
not to bad eh???? is anyone looking at this anymore................
