.28 seconds in start saying gen 1 and 2 had this problem but was fixed for gen 3. I guess the way the wind travels create more on these cylinders and fixes issue with 70 degree throttle adaptor.
Comparing that monstrosity to a stocker or even near stocker isn't right.
However, if you look at stock smooth tubes (not the straight aftermarket ones everyone sells) the stock 99-02 ACR smooth tubes have a bend in them just past the half way mark that aligns the air correctly for the throttle bodies. It was the first mod I did.
