wow. that guy thinks alot.

Every car has a problem, you have to learn it.
could be porting/aligning heads ports for better,
the cfm and original design is always correct however, it is a set math revolving around common stoich. we can make it whistle a bit harder, and can even go too large to make it a slob.

don't bother overthinking it.

some carbs have no air bypass, and that is about the biggest hack needed modern day that I know of.

add supercharge if ya want. do whatever.

don't overthink it.

Wait... how exactly does a throttle body modification compare to a combustion chamber modification? The same theories don't even apply...

Where'd you come up with that?

You're right, they don't compare at all.
Sorry, my bad.

J. Shelby Christian-Goodyear, AZ-1999 GMC 1500-I can tell you that I'm only using about half the gas I used to-and the old girl's really got some energy now! It's hard to believe that such a simple thing can make such a BIG difference! Thank you, Gadgetman!


Anyone see something wrong? Frank'll see it right away... betcha a buck.

Like I said, Frank'll know what's wrong exactly. You're right, though, that's not a GMC.
