Re: The truth about performance accesorries?
These performance upgrades are not made to give you 100's of HP by turning a screw unless its a turbo, supercharger, or nitrus. Don't believe what they say on the box either. They will help performance to some extent and in different parts of the powerband. That K&N might not have been real noticeable crusing around town but you start running up in the 4000 rmp level you might notice more power. Another tip with the K&N is to drill more holes in the airbox. Let more air in there. Make sure you drill them on the intake side. Modified exhaust is a real help on getting all that air out quicker. I have no idea why a muffler salesman would turn bussiness away and say its not worth it. If this his normal practice, he aint going to be in business much longer. Tell you what. I have a few of those 'Performance mods' your talking about. Lets goto the track and see who finishes first. Remember HP is HP........ Got any Q's about them ask away...... :~)
