Guys quit with the pissing contest, I'm trying to find scientific data, on why there would be such a significant difference.

20V have more lift and overlap. You can find more details in this thread:

The log manifold can work, but some things to consider when using a log:
Pick a larger turbine. The larger the turbine, the better the stock cams will work with a log. Something in the neighborhood of a GT35r/SC61/60-1 or a 6262. anything smaller than that and you could experience poor results. When using a T2 turbo, utilize the stock manifold. It has a split pulse design that helps reduce reversion effects.

Tuning, elevation, fuel used etc all play a role in this as well. So you cannot compare similar builds unless you take these into consideration.

I understand some of you guys are using log manifolds with your VVL with "good" results. I don't expect every build to have issues with reversion. And 500-600whp is achievable with a log manifold. It just isn't ideal for a small turbo.

I am not the first person to have issues with reversion. In my research trying to find out which cams to try, I ran into GonzoNX's website. He blogged about similar issues to what I was having, and those were solved with VET cams. I tried it and it provided substantial gains with my GT3076r. That is what worked for me, and it worked really well. Is there anyone else here running a GT30r on a 248* cam and making 440whp on 24psi?

I think we should compile a list of people using the log manifold successfully. I wanna know what fuel is used, the turbo size, cams, compression ratio etc. Remember a higher compression ratio will make more power with less psi. Less psi means less bp. So this effect is compounded slightly perhaps?
