Tuning would be easier than it is right now as well since you could tune each cylinder individually and there wouldn't be an uneven mix of cylinder pairings.

you could also try altering your cam timing on each lobe to compensate for the firing order, but that would take more R&D and $$$ than I think you would want to invest for a street application.
I have read this thread before, and I just reread it, and it really got me thinkng

what would happen if I only used the bottom half of my T-ram and a carb spacer to mount the throttle body EFI ????

would this make better throttle response?

or am I just trying to re-invent the wheel
