      Agree , Stage 2 is a little over the Top - unless - You plan down the road K16 or Cams .
      Currently My Stage 1 is Good for Seat of the Pants 12 HP -15 HP and 18 Ft Lbs - My Upper is Not Ported , but is Matched . . and
      I Don't have the 70MM TB , but Usable Rpm Range - Extended - 700 Rpm .

      Just for You Man ..

      Porting Everything .. This . . Flows Nice !

      By the Tim - I got the Manifold Cleaned for the 4th Time to Inspect - looking for any thing I could have done a little Better I was
      a Little Hungry .. after all the back and Forth . . back .. and Forth .
      There was some sort of Plastic Crap stuck down in the O-Ring Grooves and - good thing I had a Set - just to get those to stay in and
      then Do a Ink Transfer with all the Weight of the Intakes - Dragged - all in all another 4 Hrs. Later - Not Counting Trip to get some Special Ink .
      Matched Up - OK - 10 Times Better with Gasket to use , but My Volvo is Up on Blocks .
      Wife couldn't Find the Transfer Paper - so - I could make a Gasket . .

      I wonder How much Higher one of these Plums could be Mounted .675 maybe before it Hit the Under side or the Hood ..
      During Throttle & Gear Moves ..

      ( Anyone ever Check ) ?_?

      Maybe It's Time for a Custom Intake - aren't some of those Intakes I posted Pic - Wild . .

      This Not the Final Polish or Clean , but pretty Close .. Tell Me How it Looks - it has a few minor very lite zings
      Nothing that will effect Air Flow ..

      Looks really clean. Is that lower already port matched to the Puma upper?

      No - I did more on the other end and then Cleaned up with more Polish - also did the welds some - U - see in the Top after I took Vid.

      Looking Back at These Plumes - Certainly anyone that has a Generation 1 - Plume ( Has to get that Ported ) re-guarding the Puma .
      The Sec. Generation - supposedly Improved at the Outlets - Still has No special Gasket - all I can say is Wow - how Bad was Generation 1 ?

      Looks to Me Don - spent more Time Designing and Executing His Product .. .. Anyone that Got the Early Version & Paid more to have it
      Power Pumice Ported . . certainly has Very Good Performer .

      Anyone Needing the Top Cleaned Up and Matched , seems all have Enough Material .

      I'd even say there is enough to do ( Velocity Stacks ) = Stage 2 on Top .

      I do slightly Velocity Stack them on Matching & Clean Up . .

      All should get Don's Gasket as it could be Easy Adapted ( Into being Used ) on all these Other Plumes ; with
      ( My Port Matching Upper ) . .

      I agree - the puma upper is not nearly as polished as the moutune/elevate upper. I chose the Puma upper because it was cheap(ish), looks stock, and flows better than stock. Obviously there's room for improvement - enter engtech's porting service.

      Forget to Mention above : I also do the Velocity Stack Increase on the Outlets :

      I Noticed on the Puma - the Design seem to Favor the Velocity Stack - Effect - as the Their -
      ( Puma Plume - is in itself a Velocity Stack )
