    I also recall seeing 'spiral' ports years ago, but these are just a gimmick and not (in my opinion) beneficial to the application of a port.

    interested to see results....I don't think any one's ever done a drop in test with smooth vs dimpled. At least not any that I've seen

    Re: dimpled flares

    The dimples create more surface area - which I'm going to wager will decrease the efficiency - interested to see how much though.

    I would think in a daily set up no. But in comp where every little .xx counts then maybe. I've seen them in installs befor, but never messed with one personally.

    Asshat Andrew thinks it will help, like I said only like a couple bucks extra over the smooth ones

    I don't see how you would gain a noticeable audible advantage, but I may be wrong.
