I was really thinking of doing this, and this is also where I hit a brick
wall...I think the hardest part is finding the temp of the exhast gas, in
real life...sure you could build the header and use a pyrometer, but
making a header would suck if it was  a totally iterative process....
But you can calculate the volume flow in the exhuast port real easily if
you knew the temp...with that you can select a pipe diameter(I figured
right at the stock size would be good), then knowing volume flow,
diameter, RPM(time between pulses), you can then sove for the length...
Hmmm, I have senmior mechanical design next semester..hmmmmm..maybe follow
that up with independant stufdy over the summer...hmmmm:)
