    Anything that changes the engine breathing (and that would include reeds) needs to be very carefully considered, to avoid running the engine too lean in some part of the power range.

    There are similiar issues with the non-MSX Polaris 2-stroke injected motors. One discussion currently underway here.

    While the engine internals are different, essentially the same Fitch injection system, and the same "how do I boost power" issues, apply to the Virage TXi and Genesis_i injected 3 cylinder models.

    Search for threads related to these questions.
