Airbox mods-Have I got it right?
So, after i get my custom exhausts fitted, I'm going to fiddle with my '12 Thruxton's airbox. After much research, I've learned that the two best options are an ARK or a TTP Breathe/Bafflectomy. Whichever choice i make, I'll be acquiring the appropriate TTP tune. So, which is best?
According to TTP, their breathe/bafflectomy mods offer comparable performance gains to an ARK and pod filters (up to 6500 rpm, but who revs that high anyway). If this is true, why would anyone opt for pods? There's roughly $200 difference in price between the two options (TTP being the cheaper).
Is it an aesthetic thing? Do they perform better? I'm a bit lost. Should I fork out the extra dosh for an ARK?
