Okay so case inducted vs cylinder inducted reeds doesn’t matter to much. The idea of running case induction helps free up a lot of room in the cylinder to add more stuff like a third transfer. Piston ports are able to with stand higher rpms and will not suffer from reed flutter.
Personally I like the reed route because I’m super lazy and can get away with so much with a reed set up and still have good performance from it. Forget blow down , just forget it
