In theory that's a good point, however in looking at some of those designs I don't really see that much of a difference. How many ways is it to make and IC?

There has always been the debate as to side tanks vs. tanks fore and aft which then dictate the direction of the core/airflow. It seems as though Corky Bell had a positive influence on most of the better IC that were produced in this country. I remember the DP IC as being a popular choice in the 80's only heard positive comments about their design.
