Yes, I am talking about the end tanks being on the sides of the IC rather than the front and back. After hanging around shops that do a lot of high HP turbo stuff, it seems that the side to side works a bit better at cooling the charge. In addition, the volume of air my engine consumes points to a thinner core for best efficiency and lowest lag.

When I spoke to Gunther at Bell, he said the side to side vs front to back wouldn't produce that big of a difference. He might be right, but the big HP (and endurance) guys mostly have side to side. When I ordered my IC, he only had 4in cores in stock and I didn't want to wait the 6 weeks or so for the 3in core.
