Somender Singh Grooves are about creating more turbulance in and around the spark-plug gap, as well as an ignition path into the squish area.

Gadgetmen Grooves are about creating turbulance near the butterfly valve in a throttle body or carburator. 

Although interesting, as the principle behind the two different types of grooves is so different; I feel that the subject of Gadgetmen Grooves requires its own thread?

The Gadetman Grooves are interesting.  I think it's not so much about creating more turbulence as it is developing horizontal vortexes of air before the intake manifold.  It's very simply a groove in the throttle body of some engines along the butterfly valve plate.  It would warrant a separate thread.  It has pros and cons.
