    Not strictly true, it depends on how the header is tuned. Typically a smaller tube with longer diameter will give more low-end torque than a larger short tube. But that's not always the case, it depends on where your runner lengths (primary and collector) lay relative to pulse wavelengths at a given RPM.

    There are a lot of theory and equations out there, but no single one seems correct and at some point each falls apart

    Throttle body spacers are pointless. Old cars with Throttle body injection, a throttle body spacer will give the air and fuel more time to mix and at most...those will give you a small HP increase. 10hp maybe

    The 1grfe uses port injection so only the NST spacer will do you any good because It spaces the entire intake manifold

    This is the oil pan spacer. I went to Coupe after a motor rebuild of mine. I have a 4x4 oil pan since my truck is 4x4. However the motor that I received had the PreRunner/Xrunner shallow oil pan. Not good for doing any high speed turns with transitions. The factory depth will create a low oil or cavitation problem that will starve the crank and rod bearings.

    Happened to a few people I know, that had this style pan. So I convinced him to make this. He also took it a step farther, and created the deep oil pan with baffles. Beautiful piece, I must say. :D

    This piece is prior to going on my girl's XR. Added about 1 1/2 quarts.
