thats a good selling point if you ask me. "You want this much power? You can't HANDLE this much power!" I was thinking if there was a simular design on a different make of car. So the intake runner lengths decrease as the engine rpms go up? Is that how it works?

That'* how it works. And I've never seen anything else quite like it. Hector spent alot of time on it. I'm not sure if he had that one on his car, or just a straight sheetmetal replacment, but both helped performance.

heck, I bet most people on here would be happy with a sheetmetal one, I know I would. The adjustable intake runner length is a good idea, if Hector doesnt have the resources to produce it he should sell the patent to some big company.
