Better performance gain exhaust or airbox?

What would yield me a better performance gain for the money?
Sato Banzais or Turnone airbox and snorkel?

I already have the yoshi ems, flapper delete, pair delete, and soft rev delete.

Would I see any benefit from the turn one goodies while still running a stock exhaust?

Since an engine is a glorified pump, the greater the flow the better it is.
So I'd say pipe first, then airbox.
Of course you'll need a power commander to ensure the air/fuel ratio is set for 13.2:1 for best power.

^how so? I thought sato banzais were easy to buy brand new?
sato has them listed on their site...
as does sportbiketrackgear
and dan kyle

Are sato banzai pipes hard to find now?? sub?
I have the yoshi ems so I am good as far as engine management goes

I agree go with exhaust first. The only way to make the airbox work is through custom tuning. If you have an SP2 then Sato's are easy to find.

I have been looking at your exhaust for quite some time but to tell you the truth I am not a fan of the small cans. Do you have cans that are the same dimensions as the sato?

they are all built to your specs at Black Dragon

there are many sizes, shapes, and lengths as well as material options

also can do HRC size 98mm ones too

I have a 2-1 full exhaust in SS i can have a larger round, oval or even twin ballfe tri oval to go on too for you
