Cheap Horsepower? | Air Intake Restrictions

It goes without saying that in order to make maximum power from any engine we need to get as much air into the engine as we can. Most people can understand that a restrictive air filter can reduce airflow and sacrifice power, however it’s easy to overlook the other potential restrictions in the inlet system.

In this webinar we’ll discuss the restrictions and see how you can quantify them in your data including your standard air box vs the common pod filter swap.
