    Stock intake

    With the oil problem mod coming from R&D and all the posts about this intake and that intake, I pulled my stock one out of the attic. As a test, the R-Rated intake will come off and I'll put the stock one back on with the relief valve and catch can hoses attached. Rudy at R-Rated told me that the stock intake flowed very well and was a pretty good unit. Let's see what happens when I switch back to a stock intake and have the benifit of all the other mods I have done.
    I'll give it a run this weekend and post the results.

    I kept mine for a reason. I have seen enough dynos w/ filter and w/o filter to know which one makes more power.

    A filter I can't argue in the long run will provide cleaner air, but it will never allow more air into the engine.

    Roots blowers need a very open non restrictive path to suck air in and usually make more power by making the intake side less restrictive than the output side.

    I doubt you will see any gains over the r-rated, but I think the stock intake with a little modification is not bad at all.

    Without having equipment to test flow, i still put money on and favor the larger diameter, smoother, less direction changing RIVA performance intake with mega surface area flame arrestor/outerwear to flow more volume with less restriction than stock. - WHEW!

    I decided to hold off a week or so on the switch back to the stock intake. I want to get some more runs with my current setup before I do the change. I'll post the results. I'm guessing that I'll loose a little speed but we'll see.
