Wave Tuning Calculator
to the Velocity-of-Sound.com imperial (inches) induction
wave tuning calculator. This calculator will determine the most
efficient overall length of the intake runners to optimize the
intake system. This updated calculator allows the user to decide
how many induction waves they want to calculate for. The optimum
is the first wave, however, it should be recognised that both the
first and second waves are usually too long for most
practical applications - NASCAR engines use the third wave.
We recommend you start at the third wave and go from there. Just
enter the number of waves in the second box. Do as many
calculations as needed to get a workable compromise between
performance and the practical space constraints on your vehicle.
Once you have found the most practical dimensions, all you do is measure the current intake runner length
and subtract this from the length advised in the calculator - the
bit left over is the length of the velocity stack. This will tell you how long the velocity stacks
should be, but remember to allow about a half inch so the stack
can slide over or inside the end of the runner (usually the carby
or throttle body).
Remember: Our velocity stacks are metric, so you will need
to convert the ID for yourself.
Note: Thanks to a very helpful customer, it now works with
Also Note: The
Number of Induction Waves in the calculator refers to the
number of waves to which the intake runner is tuned. NASCAR
engineers use the third wave, you can now to use any number
you like for optimum tuning.
