IN your opinion, what would the difference be in efficiencies between the two and does the mpd work that much better from a standing start? Would it be worth the money to change out the intake verses the performance gained?
    We are now in the process of building a BAJ to run in the flatbottom class and we are addressing this question at the present time. The R intake was designed atleast 40 years ago and the hardware is very limited. I am leaning towards the MPD intake because we have worked with on all of our So Cal tunnels and have become very familiar with it. We have a number of hardware combinations the seem to work very well and we are able to utilize a number of grate and shoe combinations where the R intake is very limited in this area. My choice is the MPD over the R.

    Why not consider the Nelson's billet intake for the BAJ? It has been proven also.

    Nothing against Dan's intake but all of our boats use the same intake with the same bolt pattern and it just make sense to keep all of our boats the same so there is never an issue on getting shoe's. When we go to the race's or even testing I have a wide variety of combinations so our customers can try different combinations for better performance .
