Yes, the car gets a more "refined" sound. I guess that's how I'd describe it

Did you port the inlet portion as well? There are a lot of gains to be had by porting the casting going into the IM as it leads down to the runners.

Looks good! Filling the snout sump makes the biggest difference...it is only there to catch some of the oil ingestion.

Yea my car sounds like it's growling all the time now lol.....it's almost like a looping sound that made when people have the ghost cam tune on, except mines nearly not as pronounced.

epoxy high temp looks like just a match porting you'll get some gains.
