The goal has generally been to sync the intake going in for years with tube length and width in order to improve performance. But I understand that Porsche is doing the opposite and is getting better fuel mileage results due to cooling of the intake charge (air cools as you stretch it). Which in combination of a turbocharger still allows for a better intake charge than a normal engine. In other words, it's compressed by the turbocharger then stretched back out through harmonics in order to cool the intake without using a restrictive source like a throttle valve for each intake runner. This allows for greater boost, lower NOx emissions and better power and fuel mileage.
