Re: PVC pipe as velocity stacks?
I think it has some potential. I've been wanting to build some ram air stacks that sit outside the frame & use a different kind of filter so the air is literally forced in, but, well, I guess I've been too lazy. Maybe this will inspire me to get it done. I wouldn't worry about the xwind thing, I use individual pods on every bike I own and make & have never experienced this problem. Another idea is to put the carbs at the end of a long manifold. I know the short intakes seem to make more power on the 2 valve motors, but during the hot rod days, it was mostly the opposite. Long runners meant more top end & short xovers gave more bottom end. I'm a little confused by all this. I guess the only way to know will be to try it. Make sure you do lots of plug checks to be sure you're not leaning either cyclinder out too much.
