    Yes indeed gentlemen. :)

    There are still valuable lessons to be extracted from even this generalized information.

    I doubt there is a 'need' for all of it, just some suggestions and results. I thought it was a good read anyway, and adds to this thread.

    You could try lining up "X" pipes all along your entire system and see what that does, if you're feeling ambitious. lol

    Another thread from that forum titled "difference between shorty and full length headers" is also an excellent read (highly recommended), and is relevant to this thread.

    He goes into camshaft design too, with very interesting information that anyone could benefit from.

    Everyone do yourselves a huge favor and spend some time reading.

    I could elaborate some more on all this, but I feel it's so well put on this forum that all I need to do is post links! lol

    Looks like a good reference with a lot of testing and documentation. Gotta like that. Seems to track the discussions we've had here pretty well too and gives some new perspectives. I haven't read it all, it gets pretty deep in places. But if I was presently planning an exhaust system it would surely be worth a closer look.

    The site has always had a good collaboration of the basic concepts in performance.
    Much of this is from old publications. A lot of McFarland and Vizard it would appear.

    Heck, I've never even seen this stuff before. Nice to know we're all on the right track. :)
