How about the other point in my post, improving inefficiency through less intake restriction? Has that a goal of eco-modders new intake systems?
Not at all. Well, maybe for the TDI guys, but not for gas engines. Less intake restriction gives you more power at 100% throttle, no less. If you care about MPG, you won't be doing much driving at full throttle. Hell, the reason we have a throttle is to restrict the intake.
