So I've got a ques :?: How does runner (tube of an intake) length affect engine performance? Like lows, mids, highs, torque ? How long should they be?

How the car is used..Drove on the street......Like its race day! :P

Long = Torque
Short = High RPM

You set them up for the the length where you want the power to be the most
8 inches = 3500-4500 RPM
6 inches = 5500 RPM
4 inches = 6500 RPM+

That's the short answer, i can type up a longer one if you'd like

Here's a basic formula:

84,000 / tuned rpm = runner length

The runner length is measured from the back of the intake valve to the start of the radiused entry of the runner. Most people use the max. torque rpm as the "tuned rpm".

You can also use this to help figure out your exact length

and then you can also have a good read through this thread ;)

Sorry, I've been on other projects (1.3 GTi)
I'm hoping for more hp just from more RPM than stock (no more rev limit)
and of course more air flow due to three throttle blades vs. one.
the downside is loss in low rpm torque.

AT LEAST : fuel pressure regulator, rack of carbs, custom intake, custom vaccum lines,
and would sugg, to have fuel pressure gauge, and air/ fuel ratio gauge to help in tuning :wink:

Hi zukman79,
Did you ever finish your bike carby set up? I've got a 1.3 sohc (here in Australia) that I'm trying to make a bit more fun on a very limited budget and I like what you have started to do on yours (looking at pics).

Did you finish the job and any advice?

I'm pretty sure I can find a set of carbys here locally but just out of curiosity how much would you want for the carbs?
