    I believe on the "matrix" it set up the port timing better?

    This raises port timing, and will change your HP range in the RPM's a little.

    ADD; "IF" you decide to do this, be sure to use a sealer on both sides of both gaskets, and glue them together. I recommend 3 bond 1211.

    & if you don't do head work too it will lower compression.

    To me, the DI motors shouldn't really be messed with. They run crazy lean in stock form and anything you manipulate may push them over the edge.
