I ported my eaton myself it was not hard and didn't take that long to do. I know dewalt with the yellow vert ported his as well. I used a drill press, right angle cut off wheel and a dremal tool to get the job done!

I am pretty good in the garage but for that type of job I would send it to steggy and have them do it and they can check the snout and make sure everything is in good working order before turning up the wick..

I still cant believe how many people fall for the Snout rebuild. You have as good a chance of winning the lottery as they do failing.

I did my own, too.
Numbers below are with a 2.8 upper. Stock TB & plenum, UPR Off road x, magnaflow catback and K&N Fipk. I was happy with it.
Added a 4lbs lower later & put down 495whp & 510wtq. :)

what is the deal with the blower snout having issues after porting? The entire assembly (including the rotors) gets easily separated from the supercharger case and is never touched during the porting....? Only the case gets worked on.

All I was saying is while its being ported they can check the snout and make sure its in good shape.. Never taken one apart so just going on what I have read..

I ported and polished the inside of my blower and show polished the outside. Show polishing is a lot of work. I enjoyed it though, very rewarding to be able to say you did that. Porting and polishing however is very easy. I was amazed. 472 HP not so impressive, but 522 ft/lb of torque for 2 hours of work that cool. And most of the work was done by my 15 year old son as I was teaching him about cars. We used a very basic port profile, nothing advanced like the new ports. Here are some pics.

Any Monkey Can do this "IF YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO IT"
It is not easy !!!!!!! But neither is it hard!!!!!!!

IT JUST TAKES WORK!!!!!

Re engineering mechanical designs is what I do.

This is a basic port, nothing fancy, yet it is comparable too, or exceeds basic port power numbers.

It's fun to try!!!!!!!!!!!!
