|For optimal performance a TE would have the shortest runners possible with little to no surge tank for maximum performance under load, however when driving outside of load such as cruising, it can cause some decline in performance and responsiveness.|
|Runner length can only be changed with an aftermarket intake manifolds, gains for specifically modifying this length can be troublesome as it usually just moves the power band rather than increasing it. Often aftermarket companies shorten the runners and increase the surge tank volume to compensate for closed throttle conditions, thus costing low end torque or relying in fast turbo spool to compensate and increasing high RPM power.|
I'm actually not removing the vacuum tank, just going aftermarket with it. If you plan on using the stock solenoid to control your BOV, you'll need some kind of reservoir for vacuum. The OE vacuum tank is ~350mL of displacement, roughly the same size as a soda can. I measured that before I removed the old one. I'll be covering all this in the Project Woodstock thread when the new tank arrives.
... "Big name" shops live off of kids like this. Enough money to buy super sweet marked up name brand parts at MSRP and then pay outrageous labor rates all day long to have a car that could have made the exact same power for significantly cheaper that will run ten times better... ... That's when people just pay out the ass 24/7 for the rest of their lives.
