Both the Benoni and Grunfeld transpositions are relatively healthy, I think.  It depends on what you're aiming for: the Benoni transposition is more positionally risky, but perhaps also has more advantages that can pan out for Black.

Good job abusing statistics.

Er, no it doesn't. Its an indication of some sort of health (perhaps) but not a lot more.

No opinion as to the lines health or not myself, but if those two say non trivial then I'd very much believe them.

Kasparov in his books against Karpov he doesn't have the opinion that in the summetrical fuanchetto Grunfeld Black equalizes easily. Also Shirov in his Grunfeld DVD shares the same opinion.

I think the best way to play against the Fianchetto kid system is to convert into a Grunfeld!!.
I studied Fiachetto system from white's point of view from Avrukh's book but then i had to stop playing this system and i moved onto Mainlines of KID only because of the fear of black transposing into Grunfeld!
Avrukh himself admits that  there is no way for an advantage in the fianchetto Grunfeld Mainline and so he recommened a subline with b3 which easily equalises in my experience! because of the symetrical nature of the positions.

Transposing to Modern Benoni vs Fianchetto KID.

After a deep research I've come to the conclusion the way I want to play the Fianchetto KID is trying to transpose to a Modern Benoni (more dynamic play and better figures than the Panno or any variation of the Classical Nbd7) following Dembo's / DW reccomendation with a quick c5. As I think that the fianchetto-KID should be studied together with the English-KID,  if white plays 1.Nf3 & d3 what kind of Symmetrical English (I used to follow Dembo or Bologan's recommedations vs. King's Indian English but they don't fit with c5) do you recommend me (and what books to consult)? One with a quick d5 in Grünfeld style, may be? Thanks for your help.
