I know its easy to throw around $1,000+ when its someone else's money but I was offering a very sound and much cheaper alternative to zildjian, after all we're not all millionaires.
sorry you are not getting 50 to 100 cfm out of smoothing the tbi inlet the 2) 2" blades only allow so much air no matter what you do above it or below them..

no we are not all millionaires..
never enough money to do it right. but always enough to do it twice..
if he was going for a mild 300-330 hp.. I'd say sure go for it..
