What difference is the between running tbs with short/long trumpets?


A big chunk of midrange torque + some power.

If I go downwards I can do it with room to spare.

Now I've just got to try and bend the manifold tube without splitting it again!
Makes it fun to get to the tb balance screws though!

Haha, I think it sounds like my TB'd 106 16v before the cams went in.

Here's the version two of that engine (PT51 cams, Shillaber head 45mm TB's) in Rich's old 106: http://www.dcoe.net/.../Movie_0001.wmv
None of them sound as good as Pete's 8v at the start of this thread.

He is mine again. The sound/video quality isn't great but you get the idea of what a Euro Rallye sounds like up to 7100rpm

0 mins 60 secs Tunnel underneath a police station
3 mins 30 secs Motorway

Yes thats snow out there :)
