Does it being that way have any benefits to fuel spread?
There are two types of flow around an object: laminar and turbulent. Laminar flow has less drag, but it is also prone to a phenomenon called "separation." Once separation of a laminar boundary layer occurs, drag rises dramatically because of eddies that form in the gap. Turbulent flow has more drag initially but also better adhesion, and therefore is less prone to separation. Therefore, if the shape of an object is such that separation occurs easily, it is better to turbulate the boundary layer (at the slight cost of increased drag) in order to increase adhesion and reduce eddies (which means a significant reduction in drag). Dimples on golf ***** turbulate the boundary layer. In the case of the intake port, the same would be true.
if you have the time, listen to the lawyer read this disgruntled residents emails.
it includes classics likes:
"...this is something I categorically deny, and if you have any facts to substainaite this accusation i demand you come forward with them at once.
you need to learn the difference between I think and I know.
For example: I *think* Joe is a child molester. See, that's just speculation, so i wouldn't say it in front of a group of someone's neighbors and friends and prospective customers.
However, I *know* Joe is a broke-down, old, weed-smoker with no skill and a piece of **** car that in 6 months has done nothing but drive around in circles, paint 4 speed bumps and gotten paid more money to smoke more cigarettes than the Marlboro Man."
