    skunk2 without a doubt. proven performance, and raises the throttle body position to a more normal position like all the other b series engines. all the other manufactures of IM's keep it in the same position.

    Yes the skunk2 is a copy but it depends on your application if shorter runners is for you or not. I still say Skunk2/ITR/CTR unit.

    have you ever looked at the GSR intake manifold? its throttle body position is about 1-2 inches lower, which is hell trying to run an intake on a swap application. the skunk2 raises it back up and makes running an intake much easier. plus it is a very good manifold with proven power gains.

    "the length of the runner has a strong effect on the ammount of air that actually gets into the chamber during the intake valve cycle when the engine is not in boost. . . . Here, it is suffuicient to say that higher speed engines tend toward shorter intake runners. Low-speed and mid-range torque generally shows gains from longer runners. Turbo applications best results with long runners, which provide a braod flat torque curve at low speeds, while the turbo keeps the top end strong."
