Im with him. You need to know your compression ratio. After cubic inches, compression is the single most power making factor. In a super/turbocharged engine, the compression is forced, so for idle characteristics and longevity, supercharged engines are built with lower compression than naturally aspirated ones. Turbos dont produce the boost at lower rpms and are also different.

Typically, the fuel injection set up is great up to a certain point. I have never done one but, you can see how well modern engines operate with them. Choosing an intake for a 4bbl should be based on the rpm that the engine is going to make its maximum power. This usually relates to the same range as the cam. In other words, match your cam and intake. Proper combinations are the key.
