dawgates I actually have 3 manifolds for my engine. The cheap chinese junk that I'm playing with, and Edelbrock RPM air gap and a Edelbrock street tunnel ram which is on the engine now. Don't know if my profile picture came up.

matts37chev I would just run it the way it is, or even better, try and sell it to help pay for a better intake

by the time you pay to have it powder coated, you could have bought an edelbrock air gap

AutoGear If the solvent (gasoline) degrades the powdercoating and this 'sludge' ends up in your crankcase and then gums up...everything or hangs a valve open...hey if you bought the junk intake to begin with...I hope you didn't invest much in the motor. Extrude Honing is a better option. YMMV

wouldnt help anything that I know of
the gas would slowly eat it away anyway, over a few years

just curious, what intake is it?

dawgates It would be like polishing the runners, smoother flow to the cylinder head. It would also fill any imperfection inside the manifold. And if I understand it right, keep the fuel air mixture cooler.

68NovaSS What would be the benefit??
