    Reed stuffers "flow" the air to prevent swirls in your fuel/air mixture going in, it will do little on its own, but is a great add-on if you do some more work on the engine

    It's a physics thing. The Boyesen reed stuffers have a round venturi opening designed as an integral part of the stuffer itself. That opening is similar to the opening on the end/intake side of a carb. And so it's supposed to help accelerate the velocity of air passing thru it. Which in turn helps with throttle response and flow, as previously mentioned.

    Most people do aftermarket flame arresstors and higher compression head before reed stuffers but you can do reed stuffers on a stock engine. It should still help some.
