The length of the manifold should change where the power is.

Short manifolds give better TOP end for bigger tracks and long straights

Long manifolds give better BOTTOM end for pick up out of corners

Medium should be a good all round manifold for mixed tracks.

Vaughn:

Also the conical manifolds are supposed to increase power but use more fuel. I will let you know as I will test the JP one on my sedan as soon as my new car gets here.
