Default O.S. .18TM minor mods or leave it alone?

I just recieved a lightly used and in great condition .18TM.

With my 2.5R I did some of the minor sleeve/port & crank mods that have been floating around these sites. It worked great and it still runs pretty good even though its been through some tanks.

I have the .18TM apart anyways to check it over and may just do the smoothing of the intake port and possibly add some boost ports/light clean-up.

Anything different on the .18TM to look for, or known casting machining flaws to clean up/blueprint?

Leave it alone. It has tons of power as it is and one little mess up and you would have a nice paperweight.
