ported shroud = HP ?

I'm putting on a ported shroud to eliminate surge, the banks didn't do it by itself. the new shroud comes with a larger inlet. will it make my truck run better, you know, a little more power?

No power gain, you just won't have to back off the go pedal. They sound good too.

And heres why. The ported housing does not add any air volume, it merely allows the volume already present to move with significantly less restriction/compression.

"Blizzard" The big white bio-burning 03 7.3. 6637, straight piped stock exhaust, and a "New" secret blend of Haul asBLEEPsing mods and upgrades. Suffice to say, its not the fastest, but it quite possibly is one of the quickest.
