This isnt strictly available for the ford engines.. but im interested in your collective opinions on it as its a pretty radical rethinking of induction.

The only bit that gets me the low engine operating tempratures (50 deg) Ide imagine that would be hard to maintain and not very good for the engine anyway.

Thats one way of looking at it, it does differ from standard methods a bit though..

Say's to "improve low down torque" I wonder how much you loose at the top end.

Seems more like a scientific look at what tuners have known for years, a setup that is designed to work together will be better than a bunch of bits thrown together. Most of the ideas there have been around for years until emission and noise testing came in and killed it. Although some of the info on the site looks a bit dodgy IMO.

You'd think they would have sold the idea to one of the big car manufacturers by now if its as good as they say... interesting read though, but then again, Im easilly amused
