    Polishing Cases. Good Or Bad?

    I got my like new 780 cases from Zig. Thanks bro. Would I gain or hinder performance if I smooth and round off any corners or edges on the top case half? I want to help intake flow characteristics. Suggestions please.

    glad to help man.

    i am not sure about any grinding, or changing in the cases, but i do know the ONLY surfaces you want to polish, are the exhaust ports. as far as i know, anywhere fuel is present, you want to atually leave a little rough. ( like a light bead blasted finish) this helps in fuel atomazation. i know for sure this is better in teh intake track, and i would sure thisnk the cases surface would be similar.
