that doesnt mean the gt5a is more powerfull or any better per say cause in orde for you to benifit from the wider port you still need to do a lot of dremal work via port clean up and port matching and since that stuff has to be done anyway . . . Why not just port a standard jug to the target size? so for me its nothing more than a little bit of saved time porting and if your not going to port you wont even notice a differance between the 30 and 40mm intakes
here to stay and compleatly insane ! deal with it lol
