Fewer 90 degree bends equals more flow.
that makes total sense.

at first i thought the taller, walled, would be better for performance. mainly bc of the hi-rise intakes, that allow for more atomization of the fuel. but here its only the issue of air. the injectors do the atomization.

but now i undersatand, thanks wren.
