On this head I worked the guides, on the RPM heads it's just the bronze
sticking up so there is nothing to do there.

The rest is just blending every thing in. Notice I don't try to get the surface
smooth, just eliminate rough casting and imperfections. In all I only remove
about 5 cc of material.
Why would you want to slow the air speed down at high RPM?
