intake side key areas are where the ports meets the bowl area
exhaust side its the floor area needs to be rounded off for better flow.
in the chambers open it up around the exhaust seat area.if you look at the chamber an open the valve you can see how much the valve will shroud the wall when its opened.
i used 3" without any reach problems on a 1/4"electric grinder.
