name brand dremel is an excellent investment.. it is a FAR more precise machine than the harbor freight tools. If you are going to do porting work, its important to have a smooth surface when you are done. and you cant REALLY accomplish that with a cheapo "dremel"

use the sanding drums to finish out the surface. i assumed you used the stone cones. i use the cutting bit on aluminum and shape it up with stones, then finish up with the sanding drums.

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

My parts are enroute and are supposed to be here on the 25th so, I thought I might as well give you guys an update,
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!

Well, I have been polishing with the rough compound for about 3 hours or so now, and i have decided to post my worthless pictures...

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.

well, my dads friend (who a machinest) told me that my port was lumpy, and after feeling it myself, i realized that it really was crappy as far as texture was, but it was shiny, so I resanded it for about an hour and then started polishing it, Jonathan told me that using oil with my abrasive buffs would actually polish very well, so after about an hour and a half heres what I got so far.....Posted Image

and I'm not close to done yet... Finally I get some better pictures, I think I am figuring the camera out....

ok, well..... it is mirror Shiny, (I didnt beleive it was possible...) it looks like I chromed it, for this round of polishing I used Ryobi "4oz White Rouge Buffing Compound" HOLY CRAP.... It is almost like a wax, mabey it is a wax but I dont know, but take a look at this crap, I polised it for a little over an hour and look at what I have done....

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................
