Default Diy throttle body porting

Hello, any suggestions on "how to" correctly? Necessary precautions?
What grade sanding or stone to use for PORT AND POLISH? If done correctly what kind of gains?

professionally ported TBs might show a 4-5 difference in HP from everything I have read here. Do not grind near the blade.
