What I want to know is why you stop by my place and ask me about them, then I tell you, and then you go home and post this.

Increasing the intake length by an inch will not give any real gain in torque. "Spiral" patterns and stuff really won't do much either, because the airflow will change when hitting the runner, bowl, intake seat and then combustion chamber.

When those things claim to change air pattern in the combustion chamber, they're completely full of shit.

The only thing worthwhile for you is to swap out that 3.9L, or drop the big bucks for forced induction. Those two options would be the biggest bang for the buck.

when i had my 3.9, i was able to barely keep up with a r/t. but, i had head work, custom cam, v8 tb, headers, ecu flash from kenny bell, and a few other small things. was going to do a twin turbo set up but ended up putting a rod thru the block. got a 5.2 for it now. stock for now. that is if i keep it.
