There's some debate over whether polishing (ie Extrude Hone) is a 
good thing on throttle body injected or carbureted intake manifolds.  
The as-cast rough surface is thought to keep the fuel suspended in 
the air better, for a more uniform mixture.  On port fuel injected 
cars, such as most recent Audis, this isn't a concern since only air 
flows through the intake, with the fuel sprayed in directly above the 
combustion chamber.
