I agree with everyone; air is a fluid and is affected by intake runner length, shape, radii, etc., creating variances in flow.

fluids don't compress...gases do.
Liquids you meant

Fluids and liquids will compress to some extent. Try using water for brake fluid.

OK, fine, absolutes are never absolute. But liquids only compress nominally. Water would work fine as brake fluid if it wasn't corrosive and didn't turn into a gas at the first breath of heat. I'd suggest you get more sponginess from mechanical give (master cylinder, lines) than from fluid compression.

But the main point being made is that gases tend to follow the laws of fluid dynamics.

Always the path of least resistance.

I would say it matters more if you can burn a piston after one or two lean pulls...

even when all of the runners are the same, the location of the TB relative to the intake ports effects air distribution... there are a lot of things that matter
