    If you are going to run port nozzles I would go with an Indy.

    If it has the same port openings as an SR20, I think you are limited. At least when we bought our 20's a couple of years ago, there were only one or two choices. JW

    I went with the Indy for my chevy engine. There is plenty of material in the ports to match pretty much anything you can come up with. And the port nozzles fit well no notching valve covers. Can't speak about power at the moment haven't done any real testing yet but from a fit and finish standpoint its nice.
    Just noticed if it is an sr20 then i don't think the Indy will fit.

    We have been running the Miersch intake the last four years. Very happy with fuel distribution.

    Sorry, but I didn't notice you were going blown. My SR's are on a twin turbo setup so I use the carb base. Don't know if either makes a blower model. But the choices I had were a Brodix and an Edelbrock 28972. I use the Edelbrock. Also, mine are on 10.2 KBO and Arias/NC blocks. JW
