I have a Ae.15 that is in the rc10gt, I bought the truck used, I put 4 gal. thru it, then did a port and polish by myself, had a new ae .15 anyway so why not,
OMG , It was like I put a 2nd gear in it, total night and day difference, put another 4-5 gals thru, then I put a fantom pipe on it , Nice, it still runs but is hard to start, so I just put the new one on, Got to run acouple more tanks thru, then heck yes I will be doing it again, I don't go Gonzo on it , just a mild job, cuz I think if you go balls out that will shorten the live of the motor.

I used this article [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
which is about the same as the link above.
I used more of a hand file then the dremel, didn't want it skipping across the sleeve,
dremel to polish.
I'll see if I can find pics later

Sorry Montana Mike, could'nt get into chat last nite.
Pics are pretty crappy, Mothers aluminum polish works the best, with either a cloth or rubber bit.
I didn't do the carb , and I didn't do the exhaust cuz I didn't want to mess with the timing.
the black is where the fuel was running into the ports, these are after the port & polish and a few gallons. you can see I could have taking alot more off the the inlet to the ports, (this was my first attempt ) so I didn't go nuts





Do you plan on doing a P&P to a engine?
Mailk on GP had 1 ported by duckedup, said it was crazy fast

Hey ray... I have done port and polishing jobs for about 3 years now. I charge 20 dollars to do them here... have had several ppl come back with new engines wanting them done too... repeat business it the best business... if anyone would like it done i can do it for them, they just have to pay postage (and the 20 of course) and all i need is the sleeve, piston, and crank... can have them done in 2 days max and back in the mail to you.... For more info guys just PM me
