ROGUE - Heat Barrier Kit - - - UPDATED
We wanted to make this kit a little more complete and end user friendly, so we added two intake gaskets. We also added better stainless hardware for the Ultra's. These additions will not add to the cost of the kits.
The end user will not have to chase down more parts. It's all in the box.
This intake spacer will help reduce the heat transfer form the engine to the intake manifold therefore not heating up the air that is going into the cylinder head. This product has been tested and proven to drop the intake temp by 20deg. adding 2+ Horse Power Cool air makes more power. Will benefit stock or modified engines.
Tested on a 2006 Kawasaki STX15F N/A,
This engine said to red-line @ 7500 was run to 7000rpm's on the dyno With Out and With the Heat Barrier.
The computer showed a 2.1 HP Gain with a 19.5 to 22.0 degree drop in temp across the intake plenum.
Every ten degrees in temp PLUS or MINUS is worth ONE HORSE POWER.
The 2006 15F is a N/A and was only run to 7,000 rpm. The Ultra is forced and will run a lot higher rpm.
With that said, it most likley will have even better then 2.1HP gains for the Ultra.
We are modifieing our dyno right now but will test this product again on an Ultra engine when the it is ready.
We have been running this product on a 2007 Ultra250X all thru-out the 2009 season.
After a 50minute + two lap race at full throttle, the intake plenum was COLD!!!
If you can keep the air from heating up before it enters the chamber, you will make more horse power.
With out the Heat Barrier in place, the intake plenum acts as an oven that heats up the air before in goes into the cylinder.
Condenced air has more oxygen in it. Hot air is already expanded air and has less oxygen in it.
Cold/Cooler air is the goal with this product.
10 degrees + = - One Horse Power
10 Degrees - = + One Horse Power
At 7,000rpm's, With the Heat Barrier, we gained 2.1HP
$129.95 + shipping

What are the gains and the theory behind the heat barrier?
Some info on the exhaust pics on your website?

For those who purchased the gasket in the past, can you supply the upgraded parts at no cost?

I have had one installed since the beginning of my project, I did a lot of things at one time so I cant comment on exactly what the Intake Heat Barrier did to my ski, but I can say my ski seems a tad bit faster than most skis out there with similar maods, and the intake plenum is cool to the touch even after a lot of WOT....so....Ill let ya'll be the judge.......
