    What is the water box verdict

    1200 free flow tube, or 1300 with the sound supression in?

    currently running a 1200 box with the blue FF and the jet works mod on a 1300 but am upgradeing to a 1400 was wondering if it would be better to go with the 1300 water box also likeing the idea it would be quieter.
    I have been watch the water box posts and been getting the idea they would perform about the same once they are tuned in but am trying to get some direct feed back on this issue?

    you are running a 1200 waterbox with a free flow, correct? How is that compared to running the 1300 waterbox with a free flow?
    What ski do you have and mods? I am curious as well as I have a 1200 waterbox and was thinking of putting it in my 1300 efi.

    my testing showed

    1200 waterbox same as 1300 waterbox (this conflicts with others)

    with sound suppression in you are faster than with FF

    some say holeshot is better with FF (I have no way of testing that properly)

    my gpr is an 01 so I don't have a 1300 water box to try in it
    but was wondering if going to a 1400 if the bigger bore wouldn't like the 1300 box better shurely somebody has tryed running a 1200 box in a 1400 or 1500.
    I don't want to buy a thirteen hundred box figure out that the extra 100 cc aren't move enough air to make a difference and the box's are basicly the same

    so your saying that there is no difference in the 1200 and 1300 waterboxes on a 1300 motor?

    you did not notice your holeshot and midrange get better with the 1200 box over the 1300? Hmmmm, interesting.
