Gutted intake differences....

I've been looking at a gutted intake to go on the 88 this year and while I could do it myself, knowing someone with porting skills to get the runners right may be a better option. Currently, there are the ones available from Stinger and the ones from Bo-Port. The difference in price between the two is about $120 more for the Bo-Port intakes. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of these two brands and is one worth more over the other? Or should I simply do it myself and save the money for something else?

I have a gutter upper and ported lower from Stinger and from what I can tell from Bo's picture on his Website, his upper has been gutted/ported bigger.

Send Bo an email, he's a great guy and will tell you the difference or Stinger too. Both are top notch.

don't discount Steve Schlodes (unsure if he's on this forum) as well. He does a lot of porting and seems to do good work. Here's his facebook profile:
