3.0 V6 Volumetric Efficiency

Appologies in advance for a horribly geeky post...

Has anyone got a VE profile for the 3.0 V6 engine (pref. Cloverleaf, but anything is better than nothing!)?

If not, then what I'm looking for are some air-flow readings from a standard V6 to compare with the theoretical maximum given by

((D x (RPM / 2) / 28.31684)

So for instance, if a 2.956 litre engine is at 3000rpm it's theoretical air flow is

((2.956 x (3000 / 2) / 28.31684) = 156.59 cfm

but if the actual measured value was say, 130 cfm, then the volumetric efficiency would be

130 / 159.59 = 82%

So if anyone has actual readings at say 500rpm intervals, that would be nice.

Or even MAF meter readings (accompanied by air temperature and pressure) would be fine.

See, I warned you it would be geeky!!
