    VX performance mods?

    anyone done much with up grades on these?

    i have done a few things to my 08 vx but i am a HP and mod junkie

    i have deleted the exhaust silencer and water box, well i built my own version of a water box witch is very free flowing and has quite an amazing sound, tho is almost a little too loud, and have installed a aftermarket intake, along with sharpening the impeller and stator, and modifing the intake grate, (removed the 2 center bars and polished it) but its never enough lol

    just ordered a r&d intake grate and solas 18/22 impeller, cant wait for thoes to show up

    yesterday i pulled the throttle body off to take a look, i am going to try to boar it one of these days and install a larger butterfly, but there is also a very restritive looking metal mesh in the intake manifold behind the TB, i ordered a replacement intake manifold to see if i can safely remove the mesh and install the open manifold, but in doing all these air flow mods, are the ecu and the fuel system going to be able to keep up

    Looks good! I'll try to snap some better pics tonight of the exhaust, it seems to be quite a bit snappier, and does just fine up against a 1500 SD but have only gps'ed it once with a rock grinder impeller at 52mph lol can't wait for the solas to show up! And I know what u mean about the vx responces, but someone has got to get some support out there

    Got the new manifold and got that metal removed, Idk how the engine could breath at all, hopefully it will help a bunch! Here it is after removing

    Oh wow, I'd love to get rid of that big airbox! Don't see anything on eBay unfortunately. That big honeycomb thing is ridiculous, I assume it's for backfiring through the intake and catching the filter on fire? These are open loop FI systems aren't they? Wouldn't you want a power commander type device after modifying the intake & exhaust?
