    (The exhaust gases from the engine drive the turbine wheel. Since the turbine wheel is spinning and connected to the compressor wheel, the compressor wheel sucks the intake air in.)

    This observation relative to the positioning of the larger "lower pressure" tank or plenum. What John was telling me must hold water, I have viewed several examples from the Honda world.
    -Power chambers
    -Top fuel power chambers from Acuras.
    I think you are confusing the function of the power chambers. The inline "pressure chambers" are there to stabilize turbulent airflow after the air filter, they basically function as a substitute for a velocity stack.
    What I think John is referring to a enclosed intake chamber so that the filter is not exposed to modulations in pressure.

    Hey Sword,..at my request. Close this thread. There is work in progress that will render this pursuit pointless. I refer everyone to 6th element. Thanks for all of everyone's input.

    Actually this is a really good conversation. Let's keep this open so we can science.

    You guys have no idea how much I appreciated finding this thread. I'm doing my turbo build on my Sky and am going to do my own intake since no one sells an intake for a 2.4 turbo build. Definitely learned something here.
    GF's car: 2013 Veloster Turbo - Mods: 845 FMIC w/ HKS BOV, HIDs, 60mm TB, 845 Catted DP, OCC, K-sport brakes, 75A lower mount, 3.5" scratch-built SRI, PMS Front Sway Bar, Torsion bar, 6 point brace, strut tower brace, MagnaFlow Exhaust, OCCs, HSD Coilovers, SCGW Steering Wheel, CF Sequence wing, APR Splitter, canards, and side extensions...

    My car: 2007 Saturn Sky 2.4 - well...a lot.
