    On a stock engine, I don't think there would be any noticeable difference between the two. And there has been much debate as to gains on modded motors as well. However, I have always been of the opinion to go larger. You never know what mods you may do in the future. And the more air you can bring into and exhaust out of your engine - the more power it will will be capable of producing.

    +1.

    7/8 has more potential, but is slightly harder to install.

    Since they are the same price, at least with most manufactures, it can't hurt to go with the 7/8.
