Thanks for the replys
Thanks for all the replies. As usual, I was overthinking the whole damn thing. I'm going with it, thanks for the advise.

There is a dead space at the surface of the port walls, like the flow in a river. Goes real fast down the middle of the channel, little or no flow at the bank.|

Some folks actually think the mismatch helps with fuel-air mixture by creating turbulence in the intake port at the expense of some flow. Probably OK for a street motor.|

Matching intake ports heads/intake
I ordred a summit brand intake manifold for my street rod build. I notice that the intake runner openings that match up to the intake runners on the heads are not square with each other and they are a little smaller than those on the heads.
Is this a big deal – or – is that how they make them?
