In my experience, you can expect the motor to be soggier from idle to 3500/4000. With that short cam and tall gear, I would use a RPM or Stealth. The cam is gonna sign off at somewhere around 5500/5600 anyway, so giving up area under curve from idle to 3500/4000 doesn't seem to me to be the smart way to go. Now, if you had more gear and more cam, then a single plane might make sense, allowing more area under curve from 3500/4000 to redline. Just my opinion.
Thanks...that was what I was afraid of. Don't really want to give up anything off idle, since this build was targeting the low end. I am guessing my builder is trying to do me a favor by giving me one of these intakes he has laying around in hope to fix my potential intake leak ith the PP.

By chance will using a plenum divider plate help out some in my application ?
