These calculations assume 100% volumetric efficiency also.

Remember that you must divide this final answer by two, because you are making a dual exhaust.
Yes, I researched and that's exactly it for the mass flow rate!
Now I need to make a thousand assumptions to actually start calculating stuff...

Any idea on how I can estimate the manifold air temperature for given RPMs?
