v-force stuffers heads up
Seems several of these VF3 plastic stuffers have been warping and causing a hard to find rpm loss of around 50-100 rpms... Wfo went through a wild goose chase and finally found the culprit... Seems it was only a 50 rpm loss untill he pulled off his riva race filter, then it became a 100 rpm loss.. We both agreed its a good idea to pull these things out and politely throw them in the shizzit can, as they seemingly never have shown their worth in several back to back tests anyway.. Induction systems such as my sonic boomer v-stacks could escalate the possibility of the v-force stuffer failure/warping/flapping with the added velocity of the incoming charge of air past them. Ross

Thats what I thought when I was trimming them. They became so weak so I trashed them.

Yes I did see #1 warped pretty good top and bottom, #2 was about an 1/8" bowed in. I feel that at high rpms, they bowed in a lot more, due to the flexibility of the stuffer.
I dont want to stir up a panic, but if you are installing new reeds, or are doing work in that area, pull them out.

I tried telling people this around a month ago and I was scoffed at, you peckerheads.

I grinded mine down thin to open them up a little
on my triple piper. I ran them a full year at 8100 rpms
and when I took them out just this last month they
were fine. And the reeds still looked brand new too.

Is there a pattern of trimmed ones warping? Or just EFI Boat? Or is it all?
