Cool, and this is only a question, does the increased port size slow down the intake velocity, or is it a wash...I can certainly see where the charge would be cooler, less resistance... But does this also equate to less pressure...

I'm starting a twin turbo build, and wanting to know everything I can...

Thanks and this is a beautiful car...I love the paint scheme...

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

If you can turn, you ain't going fast enough...
