    With or Without stuffer VF3's

    Real quick guys, I am going to be installing my new VF3's tomorrow afternoon, before putting them in just wanted to see what you guys thought. Should I install with or without the Stuffer that came with the VF3?? Thanks in advance

    The stuffers take up the extra space in the reed cage and prevent turbulance, which helps with throttle response and low rpm power. I've personally seen several VF3 reed setups that actually gain peak power with the stuffers removed. I don't run them since they warp in the GPR platform. IMO, leave the stuffer out and don't look back.

    The majority of guys running VF3's here don't run stuffers. I'm not using them in my 1390 and throttle response and low end is insane.

    You all know how I feel about this "With" as long as they are robust.

    They dont really melt, just warp and interfere with airflow. Mine did..
