That's absolutely insane there, having dual runners on the intake. But I suppose allowing only 1 intake valve to suck in the air at low rpms would increase the airflow speed and make the gas vaporize that much better.

I bet it sounds like a beast when it takes off at WOT. Not that you would know about that
