    Power filter vs. Race filter

    I know the Race filter is superior to the power filter but has anyone done a back to back test over both to see exactly how much more is gained by the "race" filter?

    Save your money, get the power filter. I have the power filter and my cuzin has the race filter. I can't tell the difference between the two.

    oh..I heard from a lot of people that the race flame arrestor and R&D power plenum were the best but i guess i'll get the power filter for now later on i'll get the "race" filter and do a back to back test and one of them will be for sale after that.

    I can't imagine that you'd get a lot more from the race filter. The only way to tell is to test them back to back on the same machine. Anyway good luck, let us all know the results.

    The race filter is superior in air flow, but it needs to be dialed in with the appropriate fuel setting.

    You need some sort of tumpet to control air velocity.

    +1 I saw it with my own eyes... It was under a 5 rpm difference with the filters on them... Ross's ski moves the f*ck out!!!

    Im not sure how true this is. Could be correct. However ever since I have been running VF3's I have been running sans airbox. On my VF3 only motor I ran 73 mph.
