Intake Manifold Question

Ok the other day i went to some friends who port and polish Intake manifolds.....low and behold it's now made of plastic....Honda's really getting cheap on us now....But... it is on the other hand lighter.....My question to you is has any one tryed to port this thing yet....because I dont think they make one yet for our cars unless it's custom made like that of DC car....by the way does anyone know who made there intake...
I want that 170hp like DC car....

Sorry if this is old news.....If you can port plastic I'll go out and buy another one from honda and see what I get.....[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-puke.gif[/IMG]
