    just an idea, VF IIIs are very expensive for a relatively small gain

    you might consider instead replacing your 1200 top end with a 1300 top end, would cost about the same and you will get a bigger gain

    well ...

    when you add the VF IIIs you are actually doing 2 separate mods at the same time

    1) you are adding a reed spacer that provides a small gain - the reed spacer costs approx. $125 and you can add a reed spacer without the replacement reeds if you want

    2) and obviously you are adding the replacement reeds which by themselves cost approx. $425 and provide a .7 mph gain

    By comparison other mods you could do

    800 grate 1 to 2 mph $150

    Modified rideplate 4 to 5 mph $450

    Nujet 6.5 impeller 2 mph $150

    1300 top end 2 to 3 mph $500 (net cost after selling 1200 parts)

    machine cylinder head 1 to 2 mph $100

    So $425 for VFIIIs only provides .7 mph, that is a very expensive mph by any standards, to me this sounds like a must have mod for the person selling the reeds.
