Dremel isn't going to do it dude. Its got to be bored with something that can make a perfectly round hole. Plus you need new throttle blades to fit the larger bores.

The LS1 TB can be ported with a dremel, because of the way it is made you can smooth the entrance to the TB w/o affecting the actual bore/blade area. On the LT1 TB there's nothing to port except the bores...and for that it has to be bored like you'd bore a cylinder.
