Default Air Intake 2011C50

Hi All

Has anyone modded / replaced the airfilter / intake on the later C50's?

I hate the ugly thing and would love to get rid of it without having to fork out for a power commander or similar.

Here is the daytona race track air filter, a.k.a. "the football". (see pic in signature)

Just about any aftermarket intake you get will increase airflow requiring a fuel processor or you will be running too lean.

Ok

Looking at a Gman Bully and either a Gman Stealth or a Big Baron air intake.

Realistically what sort of increase in performance will I get for my $500 outlay?

Already have a custom set of pipes.

I have a 2011 c50t with Road Burner pipes and FI2000R and I just ordered the Baron intake last week, but still waiting for it to arrive. I started another thread this last week and I will be posting information and pics.


Baron claims no fuel processor if your using stock pipes, but if you uncork both ends you have to mod the fuel.
