    Real Performance increase with 4" Air Intake on RXP-X

    I am interested in hearing from everyone who has installed either the Fizzle or Kanaflex 4" air intake mod to their otherwise stock RXP-X. Does this need to be done with other (engine) mods to see any performance enhancement? My wife's 2010 RXP-X is stock except for a Worx Maxiloader and filled ride plate holes. Is it worth it?
    thanks for your input,

    You will have a gain of some rpm...someone says 150 rpm about but as you can understood, if you do not change or repitch your prop is usless mod. Due to if the ski limiter is to 8100 rpm and you put a mod of gain rpms, if you do not repitch prop the limiter will cut your gain before you can see....

    Even if you put some fresh air.

    But you needto put the filter in good position due to prevent water ingestion.


    Imo it is better a worx grate for rxpx instead of an air system!! Otherwise you will need to buy a new prop or repitch your. A good prop is th solas 15 22 r or to send your prop to speedfreaks.

    Very much worth it bro. Im running rear air now but I first I used a kanaflex kit. It gave me 150-200 RPMS.

    I was at 8100 before, and 8100 after. Only think I noticed was better throttle response. But for a $100 mod you can't beat it. Do the $25 catch can also.

    Sorry but 8100 is the ecu limit to rpm!! You never see higher rpm if you do not reflash ecu!!!!!

    You can changhe prop with a pitch that will decresae rpms so you will see same 8100 but with a repitched prop or a new prop so it give you some better acceleration and maybe mph!!

    Air intake alone is usless!! You need to tune prop
