Re: Short intake runners! (kickster)

There is mention and a picture in the Per Schroeder book, VW Sport Tuning, tons of high end, but your bottom end torque virtually disappears.

Not true at all. We use a very short intake manifold with dual TB's on a N/A 2.0l 8v. On the dyno torque is strong starting from 2000 and peaks around 3000, even more than stock.

Re: Short intake runners! (autobahn 69)

"torque virtually disappears" , Autobahn 69 u must be on crack, most guys run short runners who run turbos, it alleviates custom tubing issues, you will gain high end power, from what i know your torque curv just rises in the rpm band a little, if its normally aspirated i wouldnt bother http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Short intake runners! (1SWTG60)

runners should be tuned to n/a powerband, with boost its a whole new game where max flow is all that counts..
my old taurus had this massive intake that would change geometry at 4000rpm , sounded badass when it engaged. i think alot of newer cars are going to continuosly variable geometry intake to maximize velocity at all rpm ranges so you dont get stuck with mediocre power band.
