He began with some simple engine upgrades. A Dynojet PC3 and a set of Vance & Hines Big Shots were hung on the VTX mill as starting points. With fuel and exhaust-management issues resolved, Jim turned his attention toward the air cleaner. An off-the-shelf item was out of the question; no offense, but how many fake supercharger scoops do we really need? What he wanted was something no one else had. Starting with hunks of 6061-T6 aluminum, he began carving. When all the chips had hit the floor he'd created an efficient plenum chamber with dual velocity stacks. Besides looking good and flowing more air than the stock airbox, his "V2 intake" hid all the sensors required to run the VTX's fuel injection, and incorporated the crankcase vent, a water-drainage port and a K&N; panel filter. With the PC3, the pipes and Jim's airbox, the bike made 99.8 horsepower on the dyno. Respectable, perhaps, but not nearly enough for a dedicated go-faster.
