The Internet says that installing a cam in my 2016 ZX-10R will make HUUUUUUGE power gains!… It also said that using your see-through Sprint Filter P08 F1-85 is crazy and that buying a full exhaust system is a waste of money since the OEM Kawi head pipes are so good that I only need a slip-on… Is any of this true?
Great questions and luckily we have our friend Mike’s beautiful carbon-fibered-out 10R that just so happens to be our Sprint Filter long term test bike to figure them out with. Brock first explains what we are doing, why, and where he expects us to end up on a bike with 23,000 miles (37014 km) on the odometer that had a Sprint Filter P08 F1-85 installed at 16,000 miles (25749 km) replacing the P08 that had been in the bike almost since the day it was purchased.
So this is a content THREE for ONE as we:
1. Test to see if the Sprint Filter P08 F1-85 install resulted in a power loss from excess dust/debris entering the engine.
2. Test the difference in power/torque between a Brock’s Performance Penta-Carbon full exhaust system vs. Brock’s Predator (3/4 System) utilizing the stock OEM titanium head pipes.
3. Test the power/torque before and after tuning for the Kawasaki Intake Cam.
