Yes. Heat risers. If you block those off on your Bug, it runs like crap. Why? The carb doesn't get any heat, so it atomizes fuel very very poorly.

There ain't no heat risers on a Type IV. Never had 'em. You can build them and put them on if you like, or electrically heat the manifold, but why bother? Duals perform better and you don't have to mess with the heat issues. They sit right above the heads, after all, and have short intake paths.
