You'd be guessing dead wrong. By about 10-15 HP. The amount of air is far more important than the temperature. Pods flow one hell of a lot more air...so much that you increase jetting from 120 with the HC to 150 for the pods.what gives the best performance? I'm guessing hypercharger as it gets cold air forced in rather than just sucking in the hot air above the engine
Uhh. Not that I'm a fan of the hypercharger, but wouldn't a dyno test be unfair to it? My understanding is that most of the gain you'd get from one is when you roll on "at speed" not low-end grunt, and isn't at least a significant portion of the power gain supposed to come from the ram-air effect? (unless of course you have a dyno able to blow 50+mph air into the hypercharger...)there is more to intake than just allowing more air though.. airboxes themselves generate a vortex type motion to funnel the air in, and lets be honest .. 90% of the time when I want the power the throttle is open anyway so therefor the butterly valves will be too..
is there any dyno graphs to show the differences? Just I know with my TL1000R taking the airbox off for pods would kill the power, granted that is a sports engine but still a big twin
I'm not really an expert on this subject. I can tell you the shims that I got in the kit were metal. I ended up going with 20 pilots and 152.5 mains and it seems to be running perfect. The kit that I got recommended those jet sizes but after I put them in I noticed the Vstar wiki page only suggests 150 mains, I guess as long as it runs well and seems to perform as expected it's all good.will these shims work?
