Some new updates; we began installing the Lacomoto superbike ram air tubes, which prior to now we left off because of time concerns. We'd been using the stock tubes mounted into the Lacomoto upper, which worked well, but more power is always good.
Rubber boots removed:
Next to the OEM counterpart:
The carbon fiber fairing stay Lacomoto supplied for the race kit is designed to accommodate the OEM tubes, if desired. As such, they had to be modified to accept the new tubes.
A little hacksaw action took care of the excess material.
Ram air tubes installed into frame/plenum
They certainly look better than the bare OEM units!
All buttoned up. (note the carbon-reinforced mounting areas on the Laco upper seen below the fairing stay)
Preliminary tests look good. AFRs were predictably lean throughout, especially so in the higher RPM region. We're going back to Road Atlanta in a little over a week, should get some nice mapping done while there.
Also installed a TC active light for the Bazzaz kit. Should be a valuable tool for tuning in/out TC.
