Actually we were talking the TB and the Hose , then you brought up combinations ,then how Motorcycles respond, then gearing , then how you feel dynos dont show gains but on track will have gains the dyno doesnt show , Lets deal with one thing at a timeOk, so we are talking just the engine and not the whole package? That sums it all up nicely. [idea] I'm talking the whole package and not just and engine... [drummer]
Yes gearing is important , I think I did agree with that but thats totally different subject then the TB and HoseGearing is a HUGE in getting to your power band and getting off the line quicker then the guy next to you. This is huge when you are dealing with power adders to. Without the gearing you aren't going anywhere.
Yes it was set up for NA or Boost , Dont know the R&D that was done but in the datalogs I could see a power loss , I questioned it but everyone running them said they felt better , when tested/dynoed I think it was a 15-18 HP loss ( dont remember ) Point is they thought they were great by the butt dyno , You have a lot of reasons why the intake might not of worked and there good questions to ask but you blindly still believe that the TB and Hose that had no R&D or testing done by those making it should make HP/TQ gains just because there being sold and being used ????????????????/But were just talking the Engine...
Well that depends on who built the intake and the amount of R/D that was done to prove it works before putting it on the market. Plus was it set up for NA/Turbo etc... Just because there was a failed intake doesn't mean someone else won't come out with a better one and does produce HP/TQ.
If you have tons of power and cant put it to the ground thats suspension and tires and that opens a complete new can of wormsNot really; per say, but you can have a car with tones of power and without the right combination and can't put the power to the wheels and you'll loose to a less powerful car who has the right set up.
