In my head this seems like it will work, it only makes sense that will the increased flow and cams the engine should preform better. maybe not a massive amount of gain. but im sure theres some power to be made from this. and its a wicked project to pursue.
For a intake manifold get the 23 escape one= doesn't have the imrc aka tumble flaps. A 23 head w/ a set of crane stage 1's work great for a DD.
