The stock plastic throttle body plate is 46mm and smaller in diameter than the stock throttle body inlets effectively acting as a restrictor plate. Our Billet throttle body plate increases that to 49mm and is the same size as the throttle body inlets. To install removed the airbox, unbolt the plastic plate and install the new billet plate in its place using the factory hardware.
Our intake tube replaces the stock plastic tube which uses expansion chambers used to reduce intake noise. The chambers can cause turbulence and interrupt airflow. The aluminum intake tube creates smooth airflow into the airbox. Installs under the right rear fender cover with no permanent modifications.
Why not a full airbox or intake system? The stock airbox itself if not at all restrictive with a clean air filter. We have tested several configurations of straight to air filter intake stacks, that reduces power. Running with the airbox lid off or vented is no increase in power and the same performance as the sealed stock airbox. Our intake modification is not a huge increase in power, but its power that you are not going to get anywhere else. If you want the best performance from your naturally aspirated Talon you want this intake kit.
