I don't think it's a lot...it also requires machining from what I'm
told; the RS2 didn't have a distributor, 3B does(whups.)  I think
someone told me that it would be much cheaper to obtain darn near
equal results by just matching the IM/gasket/head, and extrude-hone
or polish the stock intake.  EH is seriously expensive at least for
heads and its something like two week turnaround from when they get
it.  No reason a local performance shop can't work over it.

I wouldn't go to any great lengths to change the routing of the
intake on the 3B.  It obviously works pretty well :-)
