Here is a quote from FearsomeK on the latest results of his Hans Monster Air Intake:
"Well, I have to say I was stunned by the performance of the 12R today. It absolutely anihilated the field.
Me and Mr Lucky ran my 12R on the last day of the season today where all the top dogs were there fighting over the top spots of the Straightliners series.
My bike has bone stock engine, MONSTER AIR SCOOP, pc3r, K&N filters, lowered, quickshifter, and geared 2 DOWN on the back for the flyer. A custom map was done last week, where i didnt gain much peak hp but it made a lovely curve (178.8 and 196lb-ft DIN)
Mr Lucky (Busa owner), 1st run of the day, 2nd run ever on a 12R in his life - 9.59 @ 146. Absolutely awesome and his first 9!
Me - 9.98 (yippee!) @ 147
Lucky was quickest out of all the bikes in the 9.5 class eliminators with a 9.6 e.t. but he got knocked out by a Nitrous bandit that pipped him on the line with a 9.8! How the fuck that works I dont know! What makes the achievement that bit more special, it was GEARED TALL FOR THE FLYER AND NOT ON A PROPER OR PREPPED DRAGSTRIP! There is plenty more to come in e.t.
At the time of leaving, Lucky on the 12 was the fastest normally aspirated bike (again!)at 196mph. I did a 193. I think the TTS Hayabusa (a built bike from the TTS tuners in the UK) split us. 3 turbos were there, the quickest doing 222 (Max, from Busa to the Max - 400hp).
It's even better, Lucky went on about 3 or 4 modded and/or piped Busas and his best was 181. He went on a bone stock 12 and did 182!!!
THE BIG QUESTION....IS THE MONSTER AIR SCOOP WORTH IT?
Fucking unequivically, undoubtedly, fandabydosingly YES!!!!!
One race i was up against one of the main runners in the 9.5 class on a Hayabusa. As usual, my launch was crap and he left me for dead. By the top of second, I was four bike lengths down. By the 1/4 lights I was three lengths ahead. The fucking power of this bike post custom map and Monster scoop is breathtaking.
Zturbo etc, I understand why you are sceptical about the snorkel with the way it was "marketed". But look at the data:
Lucky's best previously (flyer) - 191 Today, 196!
Luckys best previously (1/4 et)- 10.4, today 9.59!
My best previously (flyer) - 184, today 193!
My best e.t. before, 10.43. Today, 9.98!
We said we needed real world testing. Well I defy anyone not to be impressed by a 12 set up this way. Fuck!
