P&P intake and half shafting TB

I have another tbird same motor 3.8L N/A and ive been reading about P&P and half shafting the throttle body.

Does anyone have a good write up on doing both of these with some pics and should I do the upper and lower intake?

Thanks Jay

you'll need a dremel tool or dye grinder and various grinding bits. Just mark the intake ports with a gasket and scribe (gasket matching) and then grind it out, don't grind too much inside or the walls will be too thin. It's also impossible to get the full affect of porting the upper without cutting it open and welding it back together, but you need special tools to do so and some decent experience in welding aluminum.
