Keep in mind that some kart racers claim: That some of these Industrial Engines actually loose performance, when the intake ports are highly ported... They say to do whatever you want to the Exhaust side, but I've heard lots of pro racekart engine builders recommend only cleaning up the intake flashing imperfections a bit on mildly modified engines, and not fully porting & polishing the Intake side of the more commonly raced Industrial engines like the briggs 5hp flatheads...

I've never ran across anyone modding an engine like yours, but you could try researching that at some of the Mower-Racing forums
