Hello pbp community ,
I am wondering if it would be worth the extra flow and even maybe let the reeds open wider, to blueprint or flow port the part where the reed cage meets the intake of the crank. Pics show a cliff on top and bottom and also i side we see on the sides some restriction in pic number 2 . The only thing that is making me hesitate is the extra crank volume i would be adding by removing the material.

Any smoothing you can do for better flow path, with limited material removed will almost always net a great result.

My point exactly, do you think the material that I would have to remove would overweigh its benefits?
I will have a fcc in there so at least the case is getting stuffed on the other hand

Hard to tell exactly from the pics but, I think if you keep it simple you should be fine especially with the FCC.

Someone suggested jb weld to make a smoother transition within the case, i dont hate the idea, plus it would stuff the case even more. I kinda prefer just shaving off the spacer but they also pointed out that the spacer itself adds a good amount of case volume.

Not right and not wrong. At that point you are stuffing the case with a FCC then kind of adding the volume back with the spacer. You do what you want to do but if it was mine I would just massage all of the sharp edges for a smooth transition and not add J-B Weld. That's just me, you could try whatever you want it is your engine. Because with the spacer and fcc you were kind of back to square one and back where I would start removing some material.
