They’ll g runners is nothing new. It has been an old trick to add torque to an engine. Just look at the old photos of the first Ramchargers car and the home made intake that kind of looked like this.
even small engines have seen long runners. Many 4 cylinders and even my V6 in my Fiero had an intake that if you unfold it would have some significant intake runner lengths.
Length helps but also diameter matched to keep the right velocity right is key with the throttle.
