Hi, everyone. I have a 2014 Stryker and I've installed Cobra Speedster Swept pipes, a Cobra PowrPro Tuner and a K&N filter (in the stock airbox). Does anyone know if I would see much improvement if I installed a Cobra PowrFlo Intake?
Yes. Stock "airbox" is the most restrictive part of the system. Replacing the filter in there with just a K&N doesn't remove the restrictions.
To see the difference temporarily, just remove the airbox and listen to how much more air it pulls in.
The whole A/F thing is more affected by air than the fuel(within reason). On modern FI systems you have the mass air sensor which tells the ECU how much air is coming in and subsequently how much fuel to add. Like I said, there are limitations but if a smaller amount of air is coming in the ECU will not add as much fuel to keep the A/F ratio in check etc. On the other hand, a little more air & fuel with a free flowing AC = a little more power
Plus a lot of the aftermarket ones just look way more cool
