Flame Arrestors vs standard intake
What are the advantages of adding flame arrestors vs standard intake? I'm guessing it allows more air to get in whcih is a good thing...is that it? Also, what are good ones...I was looking at K&N...I've heard good things, but just want to throw that out there...thanks!

Whatever you go with I would put some Pre-Filters on them. It will help reduce the potential of water being sucked into the engine. You will get quicker throttle response, better acceleration, more power throughout the whole powerband of your engine. Tau Ceti makes a good product. http://www.tauceti.com/pages/1/index.htm

What he said/\/\/\/\
It's not a drastic difference until you start doing other things, but it helps. Just keep an eye on your wash/ plugs because you may need to rejet. I did, others didn't need to.

What he said ^^^^^ You sure don't want it too lean. It's a drag when you're looking for a little more and wind up burning her down. It usually just requires an adjustment of the needles.

I was actually planning on rejetting the carbs anyway since I'll be adding the extended pump, pro cdi, and some performace reeds to it. That'll probably be one of the last things I do before I attempt to start it.

You can pick up Vortex F/A on ebay for about $50 for all 3. They come up quite frequently, if you wait.
