I believe I saw your post back then. Couldn't find it though. But back to my original question. Does the TB really help with enhancing performance? And how much turbulance could really effect said performance.

Personally...and this is w/o any data to back it up. I feel that the turbulance is minimal, compared to the flow gained by removing all this material from being in the way of the flow...restricting it.

I believe there is a better flow..

As for laminar flow and turbulance.. yeah yeah.. I'm running a gutted airbox and formerly did an accordian tube.. no turbulance or KR issues were noticed in all my scanning.

I noticed the flow difference..
