If you're talking about your Probe, then I'd recommend doing it. There are several levels of port/polishing, though- I'd say only get a mild job done, since you're not turbo or anything of that sort.
Probes are only good for rolling speed (very little torque off idle), so I doubt you'll be trying to pull boats with it. I think it'd give you a nice boost, but be prepared to upgrade your injectors 20-30%, depending on how much work is done.
It's not the kind of job where you say, "Well- I plan for the car to be extreme, so I'll get the extreme port/polish job now and save myself the hassle." That's a mistake I've seen more than once. Car won't be driveable (with any enjoyment) if you do that. Keep everything level as you go.
