    ………… jack yes before and after ,….. the new pro form body is suppost to increase air flow and reduce turbulance with the air horn gone , can be worth 25 – 50 hp 😀 probably at 6000-7000 rpm so we will see at the track ,thats where I do my dyno testing 😆 and the oil filter has less restriction so it could help maybe loosin up a couple of hp taking some pressure off the oil pump drive and cam gear …… you have to look for horsepower and hopefully you will find some 😀

    A little water on the “track” and do a second gear “smokem”! Also try duct taping the camera to the hood. I have done it in the past, and it’s really cool if you happen to lift the front tires ! ………………….Mikey 😮 😆
