OPINIONS ON POWER NOW!

Recommended Posts

I HAVE ONE ON ORDER FOR MY 250F. I HOPE THAT IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERANCE. IF ANYONE ALREADY HAS ONE ON THEIR 03', TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK! IS IT REALLY WORTH IT?

What kind of "big difference" are you after? More power, easier starting?

From my experiences with the 02. The PowerNow helps with starting, low end and stall resistance - not very noticeable in the mid and upper areas...

Power now is a replacement for the bolt on intake bell on your carb. It is basically a cylinder with a horizontal flat plate in the middle of it. The stock part has no plate. It is supposed to smooth out the air flow across the main jet. It basically divides your round intake in half.

So many people post about this thing that I'm thinking of getting one myself. It's like when you keep seeing a Burger King cheeseburger on TV and you're like "oh, I don't really like Burger King" but they keep showing you the cheeseburger and then they cut back to the show and then the next commercial its the damn cheeseburger again and then you're starting to get like "hmm, maybe a cheeseburger" and then ten more damn times they show you the damn cheeseburger and then it is like "ALRIGHT I'LL GO EAT THE FREAKIN' CHEESEBURGER JUST LET ME WATCH MY DAMN SHOW"

Maybe there should be a sticky post called "Power Now info?" Or would that be too much like an advertisement?

I just got mine installed and it helped with starting, low end and stalls. I have not noticed much on the mid to top. Starting is a big change and burms in 3rd at low RPM's.
