Dual length manifolds so seem more common on engines with fixed camshaft timing.
But Toyota did use interlinked dual plenum chambers on some of its 6 cylinder engines, both straight 6 and V6 without any form of variable cam timing. And there was that Nissan engine I posted a pic at the very beginning of the thread.

Yeah I still have a weakness for the first Ford Taurus SHO engine engineered by Yamaha.
I had an 89 and it was an early application of variable length intake runners.Worked extremely well.Don't believe there was any camshaft timing trickery involved.

It seems like the Porsche Varioram is probably the most devoted variable harmonics inlet manifold. It uses 3 different stages of dual length and divided plenum chambers. Long runners/divided plenums, short runners/divided plenums and short runners joined plenums.

The 360 Fezza works the same. Dependent on revs and throttle position.

The Ferrari F360 manifolds only have 2 different states not 3 like the Porsche system.

The 360 has long runners, short runners and a valve between the two plenums that either joins the Two to make 1 large plenum or when closed keeps them separated.
