I would guess its a factor, but not necessarily the only or controlling one
Burl.  The cross flow Audi 20v head may arguably be a more efficient air
pump than the early Porsche 944 8 valve head.  It (the Audi 20v head) for
sure has a lot more exhaust and intake valve curtain area than the Porsche
head, and I think a more direct intake & exhaust path from the airbox down
around through the IC, throttle & out the exhaust than the more convoluted
Porsche path.
