I just installed my K&N Stubstack and the bottom end throttle responce is much better, and the wheels chirp shifting into second at lower RPM. Will be driving to the East Coast (Vancouver Island) tonight for our anniversary dinner so I can see what the top end will feel like. Vizard claims 30 cfm on a 750 carb.

Well worth the money.

I wish that we could use them in Superstock.
They DO work.

Dave,glad to hear you noticed a difference.
I'm going to try one when I get my holley running and tuned.
They seem like a cheap way to pick up some power.

Just back from a good run on the highway-80 miles- and the car now has a stumble. I guess I did have the lightest secondary diaphram spring in there! With the increased signal the secondarys are now opening too soon! Oh, well, my secondary metering block kit is in so I have bit more tuning to do.

will it do anything with a small (thin) cleaner? Or is it more for the big cleaners?
I guess I could try one and just take it back to summit if it does not do anything.

I'm using mine with a stock airfilter housing, and a K&N filter that I purposefully bought so the lid is about 3/8" above the case. The stock filter housings are terrible for airflow where they meet the carb; the metal is turned up creating a turbulance where you don't want it. The stubstack eliminates that. I would use one on any application where you have a choke horn (choke still works normally) and still have at least 3/4" clearance to the lid.
