In theory a little more low rpm torque at the cost of a little high rpm.

Research intake harmonics for more detailed info.

Superflow has some really good info on intake harmonics.

All about 2-stroke tuning:

A venturi in the intake will give more performance, if it will be wider and longer I suspect it will be better. If it is only longer I think the performance as the reaction will slow down.

But read the book, it is very interesting stuff.
Speed is only fiction but a 130+km/h MRS4 is for real.
