Polishing JBA Headers for better flow ?

Hey guys, i just got my jba headers in and as i was looking them over they look rough at the three inlet tubes. Any advantage to smoothing/polishing this area for better flow ?

I saw the same on mine but left alone because of the coating I paid for..plus its thin tubing I didn't want to grind it and possible make things worse ...if I had to pick again id pick long tubes or doug thorly shortys

Cost? If one has a Dremel, or die grinder, and some patience, this can be done in just a about an hours time in one's own garage. Will it be a big benefit? Probably not, not one worth paying for, unless you port matched the heads too.


It can be done, it's just up to the OP to decide if it's worth it.
