    The small tube (complete welded, not slip in) manifold is far the best for lower power engines. It will give more torque. Even on engine round 170 Bhp, they are still competitive against the larger bore because of the extra torque at lower RPM. Despite it does start to choke the power at this point but don't expect more than 2 or 3 Bhp gain by using big bore at this level.
