    Twinport is, as Lloyd has said the new engine part of the Ecotec engines. IIRC it means that there are 2 throttle bodies, one is open from go & the other opens from a certain amount of revs upwards, it is so that you get a bit less power tootling round town & when u get up2 speed, the other one opens so you get more grunt etc
