if you are calcing it out properly for the first time, prolly best to go with a straight port.

Wait do you know what "flared" means?

Because you can have a flared straight port...

I think he's talking about a round aero port, if so, there's a lot of science behind it... but they can helpavoid port noise because of the gentle change in diameter (Increasing towards the exit) compared to a striaght round port just ending.

I was thinking he thought a SLOT port was a flared port...

you can go with a non flared port as long as you have enough port or more to keep port velocity down.

along with what alex said, id recommend http://www.bcae1.com/ as well.
