Good question, I am by no means any kind of expert here. I can only speak to what worked for me. But in real word testing (seat of the pants) I really couldn't tell much, if any loss in low end torque, each time I shortened it. But just seemed to help it give more RPMs on the top end.

I think that's where the chamber really comes into its own. In that it gives you a lot more low end/mid range, which really helps in acceleration with my tall rear sprocket. And the extra revs on top help with speed. Again, your results and mileage may vary, but I am very happy with the results with the pipe I purchased!
Peace, James
