Keep us updated on your progress. What price point should we expect? GYTR and Pro Flow go for about 100 with outerwears and shipping.FUELATV said:I have done ALOT of Dyno testing with the LTR450. With this testing i have designed a new intake/air box eliminator for the LTR450 that makes a DYNO PROVE 3 HP over the stock air box, filter and lid off. I tested the trinity, pro design and mod quad filter and adaptor setups for the LTR450. NON of them made any more HP then the stock one. So I am going to use all of the stuff i have learned to design something similar for the Raptor. I will not have anything soon, but if my tests show a 2 or more HP gain i will bring it to the market. My LTR intake kit uses a VERY large K&N style air filter, Oversized billet intake ring, water repellent outerwear and an aluminum mounting bracket. The great thing about my kit is that it is all bolt on ...... meaning you do not have to hack up your air box to install it. I know its alittle off topic, but it is true alot of these kits on the market DO NOT make any more HP then stock. Here are a couple things i test before designing a intake kit.
1. Does the bike need more air to make more HP?
2. If it does then ...... how big of a filter will fit in the stock air box?
3. Is the stock air box big enough to fit the filter size need to make more HP?
4. How can i creat more velocity?
I know the LTR needed all of the above. Does the Raptor 700? Not sure , but i am willing to bet yes. I have seen the filters used on the 700. Just to give you an idea the filter and intake ring i use on the LTR450 is twice the size of the after market filters i have seen being used on the 700.
FUELATV said:Well i disagree ...... all of this will depend on ...... IF ...... the engine needs more air and ...... IF ..... the engine will make more HP with more air velocity. So you are right all the adaptors will have to neck down to the stock intake boot. So if my adaptor necks from a 6 1/2 down to the stock 3 1/4 and other neckl from about 4 1/2 down to 3 1/4 .... do you think that my intake will create velocity? If the engine needs more air and i can design a larger filter to fit in the stock air box do you think it will make more HP? If i have a filter design that creates velocity do you think it will out perform a standard K&N style filter? Well the awnser to all the above questions is YES. Bottom line alot of people will sacrafice the air box for 3 HP. Maybe it would not be the ticket for you, but it is not like compairing apples and oranges? Take the box off, add my intake and make HP or leave it on and be happy. With my filter disign and water repellent outerwear i am using most people will be fine with no air box UNLESS ridding in water or mud a majority of the time.
