Intake Manifold Question

Hey All: I removed the intake manifold in order to check for vacuum hoses as my car's been idling rough lately. It was also a great opportunity to further clean the engine bay.

Which leads me to ask this question. Do the intake mating surfaces have to have a polished finish? The local machine shop bead blasted/cleaned the manifold, which included these surfaces. Thanks!

So long as the surfaces are flat and smooth it should not make a difference. I have bead blasted intakes the same way and have never had any issues with it. They were polished originally because they had to smooth out the rough surface of the cast piece.
