Yeah, my advice is don't do it...I figured it be worth a try gutting out
the upper intake and porting the lower to allow for a larger shared plenum
volume. The result was a motor which couldn't spin the tires with full
boost from the line, but would rocket from 5500 - 6200...too high for a
stock rev-limited car.
