So I am reading this post and have a question.
Am I going to get sticker shock when I ask my local Yami to dial in my carb with V&H Strait shots and BAK?
What do I ask them to do?
I'm thinking of tackling this job myself with the help of my RoadStar Clinicians.
Just want to know what to expect to fix it, if I screw it up.
I currently get 44 MPG with lots of MO River Bottom riding. Lots of curves, hills and long flats. Great time, but not optimal MPG testing ground. This is with stock pipes and no BAK.
With that kind of mileage and that type of rds, I would bet my last buck that if ya went on the super slab and held a steady throttle, you would get the 50mpg.
But, since you are going to do the pipes and BAK, you can still get there, any way:
Don't forget to remove the AIS
, very important when using after market pipes. Also suggest to port the manifold, a good port job can yield an extra 3 to 5 ponies.
If you do port, lap the surface by using 800 grit sandpaper on a smooth surface, go in a figure 8 pattern till nice and shiny, new o-rings and use some of the Hymolar to seal. Very very important to get the screws in all the way down first by hand, make sure they do not bind 1 iota. then tighten 1/4 turn at a time criss-cross pattern. And do not over tighten.
Also suggest to not run the crankcase hose to the back of the BAK, run a hose down or to a small filter, and seal the hole on the BAK.
