I do know they are drill to accept both and he wrote me the following "they actually work with standard and vortec intakes" I went with the air gap for one reason it allowed me to hid all the wiring from my FAST EFI

I think you meant dual plane for normal use and single plane for high RPM use. Just don't want the guy asking the question to get the wrong idea and mismatch some parts and wonder why it doesn't work well!
