Is the area of those three tubes greater then the area of the original? I always thought that style airbox was one of the best factory setups. Remember three 1.75" tubes flow about the same as one 3" one.

Yup. I did that airbox 3 years ago. That'* the only thing I've done other than a tuneup on the SLEeper.

If it'* close to a true 5HP, it'* great for a cheap mod. I'l take every 5HP I can get for little cost...
