Default Air fed into throttle Body

Do cars need more air fed at low speeds or high speeds?

Speed is a by product.

RPM is what matters..more rpm = a higher demand for air.

I see so it takes more rpm to start rolling from a stop and less rpm at speed.

Thanks

yes and no.. that is caused by your transmission and the different gearing that it goes through.

I'm confused...where are you going with the air question?
